New Video: Helping to Meet Global Challenges

In 2015, the world came together to identify some of the greatest challenges of our time, and set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to respond to them. The goals are ambitious, but they’re interrelated, and that means progress toward one goal can lead to improvement in others as well.

An increased crop yield helps reduce hunger by increasing the amount of food available. This not only feeds the world (Goal 2) but helps reduce poverty (Goal 1) and increases economic growth (Goal 8). With extra income and food security, farming families are able to focus on other priorities. This creates a positive ripple effect that increases the families’ ability to access to medical care (Goal 3), education (Goal 4) and advances opportunities for gender equality (Goal 5).

Agrium recently launched a new video called Agriculture and the Sustainable Development Goals to highlight this interconnectivity, and we invite you to watch it today.

The 17 SDGs represent the biggest global challenges of our time, but they also represent the world’s most significant opportunity to help make the world a better place to live in – for everyone, everywhere.
