Innovating food systems to achieve SDG 2: Developing a national action plan

The Indonesian Ministry for National Development Planning, BAPPENAS, and the United Nations Indonesia Office, together with Global Initiatives and the Indonesian Business Council for Sustainable Development, convened more than 200 stakeholders in Jakarta, 5 & 6 November 2019, to address this through this Special Edition of the Responsible Business Forum on Food & Agriculture.

Under the theme ‘Innovating food systems to achieve SDG 2: Developing a national action plan’, food and nutrition experts from national and sub- national government, the private sector, NGOs and the development community, investors and academia, came together to share existing national SDG 2 initiatives and produce some actionable recommendations for scaling these. Delegates worked across the two days to come
up with proposals for multi-stakeholder approaches for ending hunger and malnutrition.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals define food and nutrition security as a basic human right, however achieving this remains one of our greatest challenges.

In Indonesia, some progress has been achieved, especially in reducing absolute hunger, however other forms of malnutrition are worsening, such as micronutrient deficiency, and obesity. A new, multi-stakeholder food systems approach will be needed to end hunger and malnutrition in Indonesia by 2030.
