    This issue coincides with a globally historic moment, namely the official launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs, which replace the Millen-nium Development Goals (MDGs), are part of an ambitious global sustainable de-velopment agenda focusing on economic growth, social inclusion and environ-mental protection. Having succeeded in reaching the MDG1c target of halving the proportion of people who suffer from hunger in Mozambique, the eradication of hunger and malnutrition unde r SDG2 is the new horizon for the country. Our work in FAOMZ also relates to various emerging themes and priorities of the post-2015 agenda. To mark the launch of the new goals, we dedicate our final section, ‘The Fun Bit’, to the SDGs (p. 6), where we invite you to join the quest to attain all 17 of them!

    The year 2015 marked the end of the global Millennium Development agenda and 2016 heralds a transition to the new 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. Asia-Pacific Region not only met the MDG target of halving the proportion of people suffering from hunger, but was also the region with the largest reduction in the number of undernourished people in the world. Despite good progress being made by many countries in tackling malnutrition, the overall rate of progress is less than desired and the re are several countries and sub-regions where the prevalence rates are still very high. The analysis presented in this report will help encourage dialogue and shape a new public narrative towards eradicating hunger and malnutrition and creating a transformative change for sustainable development.

    Most governments are taking concrete actions to address the problem and there is a clear recognition of strengthening agriculture and food systems in a manner that brings more affordable, hea lthier and diverse food options within everyone’s reach.

    This report also introduces a special section which will focus on a different selected key issue or trend affecting food security and nutrition in the region each year. This year, the focus is on the importance of milk and smallholder dairy in view of the remarkable growth in the production and consumption of milk and milk products in the region. The section concludes that the promotion of milk consumption and small-scale dairying offe rs potential for triple wins in nutrition, rural livelihoods and the environment.
