As the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals approaches, policy discussions on the Post-2015 development agenda, including the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), have gained strong momentum. These discussions put sustainable development at the center and give focus to the goal of eradicating extreme poverty. The goal of eliminating hunger is, however, equally important and should feature prominently in the Post-2015 agenda as well.
