Susan Bragdon Nominated to Attend Expert Group Meeting on Implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 2

QUNO’s Food & Sustainability Representative Susan Bragdon was one of 100 experts nominated to participate in an expert group meeting (EGM) intended to measure the progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of Goals agreed to in Agenda 2030 in September 2015.

This EGM, which was organized by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the World Food Programme (WFP), took place on June 12-13, 2017 at the UN headquarters in New York. The two-day EGM was convened in preparation for the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) and brought together a diverse group of experts and stakeholders in an interactive dialogue to assess progress made in reaching the targets of SDG 2, to identify challenges at the national and international levels, and to produce key political messages and policy recommendations in advance of the HLPF.

QUNO is welcoming the opportunity to be part of this process and is looking forward to collaborate with UN agencies as well as civil society organizations and the private sector in order to ‘end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.’
