UN to use Alibaba technology to reach end hunger

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has struck a deal with Chinese tech giant Alibaba to use its technology to help speed up plans around ending world hunger by 2030, under the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Two.

Much like Alibaba’s agreement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Alibaba’s involvement will be around the digital transformation of the organisation, using its cloud technology as the foundation.
