SDG 2: Zero Hunger
Food and nutrition are fundamental to every aspect of life and directly underpin our health and well-being. Adequate nutrition is essential to life and all possibilities for human development. The right to food is enshrined by international law, but it is far from universally realised. While global food production is sufficient to feed the world’s population, not everyone has enough to eat. The targets of SDG 2 aim to tackle the most pressing issues concerning food systems, food security and malnutrition, prioritising the protection of those most at risk. This Guide provides practical advice and actions for lawyers in ensuring we see food security across the globe.
It is our intention to keep the Chapters as up to date as possible. Please help us to do so by providing feedback or new information which to include in them. Contact us at [email protected]

Top three actions lawyers can take
Legal professionals can build their knowledge by exploring resources published by FAO, reports of the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, and OECD-FAO Guidance for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains.
Law firms can ensure that their policies and practices concerning the supply, consumption, and utilisation of food and other products, such as sanitation and cosmetics, are aligned with SDG 2.
Legal professionals can provide assistance in developing legal frameworks for implementing country level policies that can protect the right to food.
