We are stronger when we work together. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the foundation for a healthy, just world where every woman, man and child leads a fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity.
The SDGs require innovative partnerships, groundbreaking technologies, and holistic responses. See how we’re working with our partners to make the SDGs a reality in every community where we work.
Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, after the most participatory policy making process in human history, the world community adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals – what we refer to as the SDGs.
These Global Goals provide a comprehensive blueprint for a just and sustainable future free from hunger and poverty and we work to address as many of these goals as possible with our programs.
UN Global Compact
The Hunger Project is a proud signer of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. With nearly 12,000 business and non-business participants in over 170 countries, the UN Global Compact is a voluntary initiative committing participating members to sustainable development and good corporate citizenship.
Movement for Community-led Development
Community-led development (CLD) is a term that describes the process of working together to create and achieve locally owned visions and goals. We start with women, and build on local strengths to achieve systemic change as opposed to running short-term projects. All strategies pioneered by The Hunger Project are CLD approaches.
Both globally and in national chapters, the Movement for Community-led Development brings groups together to share promising practices, compile evidence about where and how CLD works, and engage governments and donors around the many ethical and practical advantages of CLD.
Our ultimate goal is for national governments to establish the policies and budgets that will enable all communities to achieve their goals on a sustainable basis–most of which needs to happen via decentralized governance and services.
The Hunger Project serves as the global secretariat for the Movement, based in Washington, D.C.
Make change happen. Invest in people.
