The aim of SDG 2 is to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
The Grantham Centre supports multiple research projects which work towards this goal, with a special focus on sustainable agriculture. Grantham Scholar Ligia Bertolino is looking for rice which can survive global warming. Cecilie Dyngeland is examining small-scale farmers in developing countries, who 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.
