Targeting UN Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger

In 2015, the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is comprised of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These SDGs are a call to action aimed at preserving the livelihood of Planet Earth and every organism that inhabits it by addressing various issues including, but not limited to, hunger, poverty, disease, pollution, and climate change. The only way to achieve these goals is for all countries to participate through collaborative efforts, and this is where open scientific research plays a pivotal role. One such goal, SDG2, focuses on ending world hunger.

By the year 2030, it is estimated that more than 600 million individuals will face hunger. Worldwide, malnutrition due to food insecurity persists in children under the age of 5 resulting in such devastating health consequences as stunted growth, muscle wasting, and obesity. In fact, currently one in three individuals across the globe struggle with moderate to severe food insecurity. In areas that do have greater food supply, the ever-increasing cost of food has placed a hinderance on access to nutritional food options. The goal for SDG2 is that no individual goes hungry, and it is at high risk.

In this Article Collection, All Life addresses SDG2: Zero Hunger through innovative open scientific research that can be used to further create, increase, and/or improve sustainable food production. The Collection welcomes studies that investigate resilient and healthy agricultural practices enabling to increase productivity and production, to help maintain ecosystems, to strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change via accessible crops, livestock, and farmland to combat hunger.

This Article Collection will accept original research articles, reviews, short communications, data notes, and commentaries on topics including, but not limited to:

  1. Agronomy for better care of crops
  2. Novel approaches aiming to maximum yield with biodegradable products while minimizing off-target effects on sensitive organisms.
  3. New sustainable nutrients engineering and formulation
  4. Soil nutrient utilization by crops and sustainable fertilization systems
  5. Approaches to livestock breeding
  6. Land use modelling
  7. Cellular agriculture
  8. Husbandry science, including infectious pathogens threatening crops and livestock
  9. Plant breeding genetics

­­All manuscripts submitted to this Article Collection will undergo a full peer-review; the Guest Advisor for this Collection will not be handling the manuscripts (unless they are an Editorial Board member).
