The Hunger Project 2015 Annual Report
The Hunger Project’s 2015 Annual Report highlights our work to end hunger in nearly 20,000 communities throughout Africa, South Asia and Latin America, as well as our global advocacy efforts to end hunger and poverty worldwide.
2015 was a pivotal year. It marked the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) — an “Agenda to Transform Our World.” This agenda was a result of the largest-ever participatory policy-making process in which the nations of the world agreed to a framework of goals to “finish the job,” including ending hunger by 2030. The 17 SDGs address everything from hunger and poverty to peace-building, inclusive economic growth and participatory governance.
Yet, we still have much work ahead of us to achieve the 2030 agenda. In 2015, The Hunger Project focused on a global process to develop a new strategic plan for the years 2016–2020. The plan prioritizes building large-scale partnerships and alliances to ensure gender-focused, community-led development is available everywhere it is needed. It includes goals to deepen our impact in the communities where we work, highlight the critical role of gender-focused, community-led development, and take such approaches to scale to truly transform society.
The Hunger Project sees these as our highest leverage actions to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. People are at the heart of everything we do. When we put people at the center — driving their own change — we can end hunger once and for all.
