PARC 2022 MAKERS Challenge

According to the FAO, In 2020, Between 720 and 811 million people faced hunger (due to conflict, climate variability and extremes, economic slowdowns and downturns, and the COVID-19 pandemic). Nearly one in three people in the world (2.37 billion) did not have access to adequate food in 2020 – that’s an increase of almost 320 million people in just one year. Compared with 2019, 46 million more people in Africa were affected by hunger in 2020 (282Million). Makers are challenged to end hunger in Africa by utilizing science and technology to develop solutions in their communities that increase food security and contribute to the achievement of the SDG 2.
