To improve people’s lives and sustainable development, we need to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

The foundation is to obtain a quality education. Major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrolment rates in schools, particularly for women and girls.

Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously. However, bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education even the world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys.

Here are the details of SDG2 Zero Hunger according to the United Nations.
