Exploring the SDGs on ScienceOpen: #2 Zero Hunger

In 2020, between 720 million and 811 million people worldwide were suffering from hunger, roughly 161 million more than in 2019. Also in 2020, a staggering 2.4 billion people, or above 30 percent of the world’s population, were moderately or severely food-insecure, lacking regular access to adequate food.

The challenges towards achieving zero hunger globally are many, and the Sustainable Development Goal 2 is aiming to achieve this goal by 2030 with support from different actors around the world.

We at ScienceOpen want to do our part, so in this blog post, part of the #ExploreSDGs campaign, we will highlight all of the important developments, research, and innovations in scholarly publishing that are assisting in the acceleration of SDG 02: Zero Hunger.

Accelerating progress under SDG2

ScienceOpen’s network of over 88 million publications provides context and content on all aspects of SDG2. The Goal aims to end hunger by ensuring food security, access to safe and nutritious foods, eradicating all forms of malnutrition, doubling agricultural productivity globally, and ensuring sustainable and resilient food production practices.

Many of the targets mentioned above are addressed in the various books and book chapters published by Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing, which scholars can access on ScienceOpen.

The collection features over 300 titles, aiming to bridge the knowledge gap between science and its application, enabling and empowering scholars to make a positive impact on sustainable agriculture, climate change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

For topics related to the SDG2, we invite you to have a look at the following book and book chapter titles:

The Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research is a peer reviewed open access scientific journal published by Teagasc (Agriculture and Food Development Authority, Ireland), featuring articles on any aspect of research of direct relevance to agriculture and food production, including plant and animal sciences, food science, agri-environmental science, soils, engineering, buildings, economics, and sociology.

Its publications on food science and technology, agriculture, and resource management are of high relevance to the topics and targets covered by SDG2: Zero Hunger.
