Sustainable Development Goal 02 - Zero Hunger

"End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture" : Stunting, which can occur when a child under five years of age and does not receive adequate nutrition, remains an issue in some of our Pacific countries. One in four children in Vanuatu, one in three children in the Solomon Islands and one in two children in PNG are reported as being stunted. Poorly nourished children are more vulnerable to disease, tend to show lower performance in school, and are less likely to be productive adults. At the same time, the prevalence of obesity in young children is increasing in parts of the region, although there is insufficient data to give a complete picture.
