3rd International Congress on Hidden Hunger 2017 Stuttgart – Post Agenda 2016 and SDG: Where are we now?

  • Conference Call
  • Post-​2015 Agenda and Sus­tain­able Devel­op­men­tal Goals (SDG): Where are we now? Strate­gies to improve nutri­tion qual­ity and com­bat hid­den hunger

    The 3rd Con­gress Hid­den Hunger is a con­tin­u­a­tion of the suc­cess­ful, inter­na­tional event series “Con­gress Hid­den Hunger“ which started in 2013. At the 1st Con­gress Hid­den Hunger the causes and con­se­quences of hid­den hunger as well as pos­si­ble solu­tions were dis­cussed. The 2nd Con­gress Hid­den Hunger which was hosted in 2015 addressed the spe­cific prob­lem of hid­den hunger dur­ing preg­nancy and the first years of life. Asso­ci­ated, seri­ous con­se­quences for child devel­op­ment and the increased risk for mater­nal mor­tal­ity were also discussed.

    The 3rd Con­gress Hid­den Hunger will con­sider the ques­tion of how far the Post 2015-​Agenda and other pro­grams and mea­sures adopted in 2015 to fight against world famine and poverty have already been imple­mented. To achieve this, polit­i­cal par­ties and indus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of civil soci­ety and advo­cacy groups (NGOs) are invited to take a position.

    Fur­ther­more, suc­cess­fully estab­lished projects and ini­tia­tives (such as the spe­cial ini­tia­tive „One World – No Hunger“ of the Fed­eral Min­istry for Eco­nomic Coop­er­a­tion and Devel­op­ment (BMZ)) will be pre­sented at the congress.

    The „Con­gress Hid­den Hunger“ pro­vides a plat­form for global inter­ac­tions of mem­bers belong­ing to the sci­en­tific com­mu­nity, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from pol­i­tics, gov­ern­ment and the media as well as mem­bers of civil soci­ety orga­ni­za­tions, advo­cacy groups and pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor bodies.

    This con­gress is orga­nized by the Food Secu­rity Cen­ter (FSC) and the Soci­ety for Nutri­tion and Food Sci­ence (SNFS) and will take place in Stuttgart, Ger­many at the Möven­pick Hotel Stuttgart Air­port & Messe on March 2022, 2017.
