3rd International Congress Hidden Hunger

Post-2015 Agenda and Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDG): Where are we now? Strategies to improve nutrition quality and combat hidden hunger

20-22 March 2017 / Stuttgart, Germany

The 3rd Congress Hidden Hunger is a continuation of the successful, international event series “Congress Hidden Hunger“ which started in 2013. At the 1st Congress Hidden Hunger the causes and consequences of hidden hunger as well as possible solutions were discussed. The 2nd Congress Hidden Hunger which was hosted in 2015 addressed the specific problem of hidden hunger during pregnancy and the first years of life. Associated, serious consequences for child development and the increased risk for maternal mortality were also discussed.

In March 2017, a 3rd Congress Hidden Hunger will consider the question of how far the Post-2015 Agenda and other programs and measures adopted in 2015 to fight against world famine and poverty have already been implemented. To achieve this, political parties and industry representatives as well as representatives of civil society and advocacy groups (NGOs) are invited to take a position. Furthermore, successfully established projects and initiatives (such as the special initiative „One World – No Hunger“ of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)) will be presented at the congress. 

Young scientists and members of small organizations will have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to participate in the congress. They are invited to supplement the event with a presentation of their ideas for cooperation and implementation of different measures in the fight against world famine. It is important that all participants present and discuss the specific objectives of such measures and how they are to be regionally implemented.

The "Congress Hidden Hunger“ provides a platform for global interactions of members belonging to the scientific community, representatives from politics, government and the media as well as members of civil society organizations, advocacy groups and private and public sector bodies. The considerable and continuous feedback to the first two congresses convinced the organizers to host the 3rd Congress Hidden Hunger.
