In 2015, leaders of the Group of 7 (also known as the G7) countries came together and set an ambitious target to lift 500m people out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030. At the time, Global Citizen applauded them for their commitment.
In the same year, the G7 leaders (along with the rest of the world leaders) agreed to end all forms of malnutrition by 2030, for all people.
Yet, unfortunately, the G7 leaders have not yet put a plan in place nor the money needed to meet these targets.
Sign the petition to call on G7 countries to deliver their promise – #NoHunger2030
Each year around 3 million children die from malnutrition. Each night, 800 million people go to bed hungry. Yet one third of the food produced globally for human consumption – around 1.3 billion tonnes – gets lost or wasted.
We are therefore calling on leaders from the G7 countries to keep their promise and put in place a plan for how they will meet their targets to lift 500m people out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030, and to work with other world leaders to end all forms of malnutrition for all people by 2030.
They can do this by making food and nutrition security a priority issue at the G7 meeting in May and agreeing a way to meet their targets by 2030.
Representatives (Sherpas) from the G7 countries will meet in Rome at the end of January 2017 to make plans for the May G7 Summit. We want to tell the Sherpas and leaders from the G7 countries that Global Citizens think food and nutrition should be a priority for the G7.
