In this new season of Down to Earth, we look at the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development: 17 objectives to make the world a fairer, healthier and better place to live by 2030. They have been described as a "to-do list for people and the planet".
In this episode we focus on efforts to end hunger. Today, one in nine people go to bed hungry - nearly equal to the populations of the United States and the European Union. Conflicts and climate change are amongst the main challenges to overcome if the world has any chance of eradicating famine for the long term.
