Ending Hunger: What would it cost?

Share This

A number of recent estimates exist for what is needed to end hunger and malnutrition. The estimates vary but all agree it will require a mix of investment in infrastructure, research and development, extension services and safety nets.

The share of the cost that donors ought to contribute is missing from recent estimates. In particular, there is a need for an estimate of the donor’s share in achieving the hunger-related Sustainable Development Goals. IISD is leading a project to estimate the cost of interventions to reduce hunger and to agree on an appropriate donor share of these costs. Working with the International Food Policy Research Institute, we will analyze information obtained from economic modelling and detailed household surveys, and match them with donor priorities to build a case for establishing clear, realistic and politically feasible targets for donors.
