Food Security and Nutrition

Ending hunger and malnutrition is among the greatest challenges humanity faces. As per the United Nations Committee on World Food Security, a person is considered “food secure” when they have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. SDG-2 sets targets to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030. Therefore, urgent action is needed to ensure global food security in line with the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

To realize this, SAF is Mobilizing and sensitizing households on the significance of having enough food at the household and community level, emphasizing the critical importance of maintaining healthy feeding and dietary habits, especially among rural communities. The flagship project under this intervention is the agricultural mechanization program that is geared towards easing/improving marginalized populations’ access to inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides. The project is implemented with the view of increasing productivity at the farm to ensure households produce enough food, for consumption at the household level and sale to supplement household income, as well as acquiring other nutritious foods (chicken, beef, margarine, etc.) that some families cannot produce.
