On 11 July 2016 the World Food Programme officially launched its Innovation Accelerator in Munich, Germany.

Based in Munich, the Innovation Accelerator combines internal World Food Programme staff with experts and entrepreneurs from across the private sector and civil society. Teams collaborate for three- to six-month periods on selected ideas that are either proposed by World Food Programme innovators with first-hand field knowledge or crowd-sourced by engaging members of the general public.

The world has made real progress by reducing the number of people suffering from hunger by 200 million since the 1990s. Yet there are still 795 million people who do not receive enough food for an active healthy life. The Innovation Accelerator should be a key way to help reach Sustainable Development Goal 2 and end hunger by 2030.
