Food security and adequate nutrition are a matter of life or death. They are integral to a wide range of development goals, as preconditions for sustainable, social, economic and human development. However, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO, 2017), 800 million people still suffer from hunger and more than two billion from malnutrition (micronutrient deficiencies or forms of overnourishment), with Africa as the continent with the highest levels of vulnerability. Globally, 159 million children under five are stunted, with no access to adequate nutrition.
