Sector Specific Report - (Food & Agriculture) January 2023

The UN General Assembly has declared the 2023 as “International Year of Millets” for which the celebration has started from 1st January 2023 around the world. The goal is to scale up the production of millets and increase the overall cultivation area as it is an affordable and nutrient-rich cereal to feed the continuously growing global population and address food security concerns. A yearlong celebration will help to increase people’s participation and make it a mass movement to help in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030.
