How do we ensure a healthy and sustainable diet for our growing world population? How should agriculture adapt – or stay the same – to support the Sustainable Development Goals? The SDG Academy course Feeding a Hungry Planet: Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability, relaunching February 11, 2019, on edX, tackles these questions and more.

You’ll also explore how food systems, technological advancement in food production, rural development, and more impact the mission of sustainably feeding the billions of people on our planet.
