Our work

Catalysing coordinated action

The Coalition catalyses coordinated action to end hunger by supporting countries as they continue to work on their national food systems transformation pathways. 

This work aligns with the outcomes from the UN Food Systems Summit and subsequent meetings, using the national food systems pathways as guidance. Through evidence-based coordinated action, we are dedicated to encouraging stakeholders, including governments and the private sector, to help eliminate world hunger and malnutrition once and for all.

Several countries, at different stages of implementing the pathways, have requested support. Through different products and actions, the Coalition identifies exact needs and connects countries to relevant partners.


Country-specific roadmaps

The Zero Hunger Coalition engages with national stakeholders to develop country-specific analysis to effectively tackle hunger and malnutrition. This analysis uses advanced evidence-synthesis and cost modelling to identify the most effective interventions and their associated costs to end hunger while also addressing the issues of nutrition, gender equality and climate change. 

To date, the Coalition has published three Evidence-based and costed country roadmaps for effective public interventions to transform agriculture and food systems in Ethiopia, Malawi and Nigeria. These roadmaps examined how to end hunger, make diets healthier and more affordable, improve the productivity and incomes of small-scale producers, and mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Further country-specific roadmaps are currently underway for Bangladesh, Benin, Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Madagascar and Zambia.


Match-making process

The country-specific roadmaps provide the insight into a country's priorities and forms the basis on which investment opportunities can be further developed to achieve desired outcomes.

The match-making comes in when potential investors, such as donors and private sector through the Zero Hunger Private Sector Pledge, are connected with the country. This enables different partners to align their actions to specific country priorities to eradicate hunger and malnutrition.

To enable such a match-making process, the Zero Hunger Coalition will facilitate connections with relevant expertise and resources through increasing visibility and awareness of ongoing efforts. This can be achieved through fostering new partnerships, leveraging existing networks, and promoting exchange of insights and lessons learnt.
