How technology can help eradicate hunger

Every day, millions of men and women across the globe struggle to feed their children a nutritious meal. In a world where we produce enough food to feed everyone, 690 million people still go to bed on an empty stomach each night. Acute food insecurity affected 135 million people in 55 countries in 2019. Even more – 1 in 3 – suffer from some form of malnutrition.

In this session, hear from experts on how eradicating hunger and malnutrition is one of the great challenges of our time. Not only do the consequences of not enough – or the wrong – food cause suffering and poor health, they also slow progress in many other areas of development like education and employment.

Understand how climate change impacts the food supply and exacerbates hunger issues. Get ideas for use cases on how technology can help solve this critical issue.
