On February 6th, 2021, the University of Saskatchewan's Postgraduate Medical Education Office and International Office, the Royal University Hospital, and SDSN Canada released a report in Springer Reference's Zero Hunger journal on COVID-19 and Solidarity to Alleviate Hunger.
The report touched on how the world was not on track to achieve SDG 2: Zero Hunger by 2030, and how COVID-19's stresses on the global food chain have further complicated efforts to achieve this SDG and eradicate food insecurity in vulnerable populations, specifically in developing countries. Food insecurity has multiple socioeconomic, health, environmental, and agricultural impacts on societies; an interdisciplinary solution is needed for this interdisciplinary problem. Particularly, this current food insecurity and economic downturn provides a prime opportunity for innovation and the creation of new businesses during countries' economic recoveries.
