Young innovators – aged 18 to 35 – are being urged to take part in a hackathon and help tackle the world’s rising levels of hunger.

The #HackAgainstHunger initiative is being run by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and the Food Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in a bid to discover game changing ideas that can be developed into tech innovations that offer solutions to the problem.

With more than 800 million people around the world undernourished, and the global population rising, solutions are needed – and fast.

The hackathons will be held in three regions, in Africa, and the Caribbean next month, as well as Geneva in March during the WSIS Forum in Geneva, 19 t0 23 March.
