World ‘off track’ to meet most Sustainable Development Goals on hunger, food security and nutrition: UN

Four years since the international community agreed to implement the 17 Sustainable Development Goals — whose objectives include tackling food insecurity and poor nutrition — FAO said that a lack of progress “is the norm”.
