    This policy brief looks at the most marginalized and disadvantaged section of Nepalese society, people who are ultra poor, severely undernourished and chronically food insecure. They have long been excluded from mainstream development efforts – indeed even excluded from the communities in which they reside. Recent political developments in Nepal, particularly a new interim constitution which expressly acknowledges that the marginalized people have the same rights as all other citizens, provides an opportune moment to address the issues relating to them. The paper advocates adopting a livelihoods approach to the formulation of policies for these disadvantaged segments of Nepalese society.

    At the heart of the 2030 Agenda was a promise to prioritize two objectives: to eradicate poverty and end hunger and malnutrition in all their forms. While global hunger, measured by the prevalence of undernourishment, had been on the decline, the absolute number of hungry people remained very high. In response, heads of states at the G7 Summit in Elmau in 2015 committed to lift 500 million people out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030 as part of a broader effort undertaken with partner countries to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, i.e. Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 2) to end hunger and malnutrition by 2030. Nevertheless, the number of undernourished people in the world kept rising, from 653 million people in 2015 to 690 million people in 2019, highlighting the challenge of achieving the goal of Zero Hunger and malnutrition by 2030. This study reviews the food security situation and change therein in light of recent developments, including COVID-19. It also analyses to which extent G7 countries responded to the challenge and their commitment in terms of development assistance and outlines promising investment opportunities to meet the 2030 targets.
