The paper presents an integrated literature review organised around three disciplinary perspectives central to realizing SDG 2: ecology and agricultural sciences; nutrition and public health; and political economy and policy science. It argues that the pathway to achieving Zero Hunger should centre on place-based, adaptive and participatory solutions that simultaneously attend to local institutional capacities, agroecosystem diversification and ecological management, and the quality of local diets.

This research supports SDGs 2 (zero hunger), 15 (life on land) and 17 (partnerships for the goals). Ecological intensification aims to use ecosystem services (e.g. pollination and pest management) to sustain agricultural production while minimising environmental impact. Kleijn et al. discuss the benefits of ecological intensification and ways that scientists can better communicate these to farmers.

This article reflects on the ecological sustainability of insects as food, developing SDG 2 (zero hunger) and SDG 12 (responsible production and consumption). Sustainability of insects for food will be determined by a range of factors including the species reared, the type of feed used and management of waste.

This Elsevier Atlas Award winning article explores the use of fertilisers within Africa to improve food security. It suggests critical future research directions to advance progress towards SDG 2 (zero hunger). Research and development of local and affordable fertilizers could enhance Africa's agricultural production significantly, increasing food self-sufficiency and nutrition security.
Contributing to SDG 2 (zero hunger) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), this research uses a holistic view to create a Food-Energy-Water (FEW) nexus in order to reveal the hidden connections related to food self-sufficiency issues within China and Japan.

This article debates the practicality and benefits of comprehensive food-energy-water nexus policy approaches. Improved understandings of the nexus holds broad potential to contribute to multiple interconnected SDGs including 2 (zero hunger), 6 (clean water and sanitation), and 7 (affordable and clean energy).
Winnig the July 2017 Elsevier Atlas prize, this article advances goals 2 and 5 through its discussion of the importance of gender-aware seed governance regimes to develop smallholder agriculture, increase gender equity, and enhance food security and rural livelihoods in the dry areas of the temperate world.
This article and video highlights a project between Elsevier and Wageningen University which examines how research impacts society, with a particular focus on SDG 2.

SDG 5 - gender equality - has the potential to enhance food security through its attention to women's access to land and natural resources. However, it fails to address women's limited access to irrigation, credit and other inputs. As such, this paper calls for goal 5 to be expanded through synergies with other SDGs.
