World is ‘tremendously off track,’ runs risk of not meeting its Sustainable Development Goals by 2030

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General said with so many people going hungry around the world, the plan is “tremendously off track” in meeting its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 according to Caricom Today.

According to the United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, between 720 and 811 million people went hungry in 2020. That’s 161 million more than 2019.

Guterres said on Monday the “new, tragic data” tells us that the world is “tremendously off track” in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

“High costs, coupled with persistently high levels of poverty and income inequality, continue to keep healthy diets out of reach for around three billion people, in every region of the world,” added António Guterres, in a statement during which he convened a World Summit on food systems to be held in September.

Hunger has been affecting more people every year. Guterres said that at present in 2021, “we are failing to provide what is a fundamental right for people around the world.”

Guterres said that the world is producing 300% more food than 50 years ago, but yet more people are going hungry, and malnutrition is reducing life expectancy. Coupled with that, the pandemic has only exacerbated the situation.
