HZero is the first innovation hub for the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region, focusing on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN). HZero aims to strengthen the local innovation ecosystems, promote alliances, catalyse efforts and capacities and facilitate resources to support innovations that positively impact the territories in LAC. It promotes disruptive and transformative innovation towards achieving Zero Hunger in the LAC region. The WFP Country Office in Colombia manages the hub.
Despite the significant progress in reducing hunger rates during the last two decades, malnutrition and hunger have been back on the rise in LAC. This situation has been exacerbated by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has dramatically affected poverty and food security.
Against this complex background, establishing the HZero regional innovation hub provides a powerful platform connecting WFP and its partners in a combined effort to accelerate progress towards SDG 2: Zero Hunger
