Three weeks ago, 193 Member States of United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals, setting a new development agenda for the next 15 years.

Meeting these Goals will not be possible if we cannot end hunger and malnutrition. 

Despite significant progress, nearly 800 million people are still undernourished, 98 percent of them in developing countries. Three-quarters of all hungry people live in rural areas, mainly in the villages of Asia and Africa.

Jijiga, Somali Region, ETHIOPIA

In the recent decades the small towns of Ethiopia's Somali Region have seen important demographic and economic growth. This has encouraged a wealth of innovations to spread as pastoralists seek to strengthen ties with local markets. In the region, camels are the most important signifier of wealth and determinant of one’s status in the community. Whereas, their milk was mainly used for domestic purposes, one of the innovations that has spread all over the region is the commercialization of camel milk.
