type="graphical"> The challenge of ensuring future food and nutrition security received widespread attention in 2013. The Millennium Development Goal (MDG) to halve global hunger by 2015 has not yet been met. Although progress has been made, one in eight people still suffer from hunger, and nearly 2 billion are affected by hidden hunger, or micronutrient deficiencies. Hunger and undernutrition can be eliminated sustainably by 2025. The experiences of successful countries in substantially reducing hunger and undernutrition suggest that it is realistic to strive for this goal by accelerating the pace of progress.
