The aim of SDG 2 Zero Hunger is to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
The Grantham Centre supports multiple research projects that work towards SDG 2 Zero Hunger. But we have a special focus on sustainable agriculture. For example, Grantham Scholar Ligia Bertolino is looking for rice that can survive global warming. And Cecilie Dyngeland is examining small-scale farmers in developing countries, because they need to be supported if food security is to be improved in developing regions. And Niall Bradshaw is exploring the use of human waste as a sustainable fertiliser.

Our Scholars work on projects which will help the world reach the targets set out by the SDGs. Supervised by academics from across academic disciplines, the Scholars also have the benefit of expertise from business and policy experts.
