“ WE WILL TALK ABOUT THE GLOBAL GOALS EVERYWHERE WE GO AND WITH EVERYONE WE MEET”

THE TARGETS…⚜

Everyone can help to make sure that we meet the Global Goals. Use these eight targets to eradicate world hunger.

*TARGET 2.1*

*UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO SAFE AND NUTRITIOUS FOOD*

By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round.

*TARGET 2.2*

*END ALL FORMS OF MALNUTRITIOE*
By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons.

*TARGET 2.3*

*DOUBLE THE PRODUCTIVITY AND INCOMES OF SMALL-SCALE FOOD PRODUCERS*

By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.

*TARGET 2.4*

*SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION AND RESILIENT AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES*

By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality.

*TARGET 2.5*

*MAINTAIN THE GENETIC DIVERSITY IN FOOD PRODUCTION*

By 2020, maintain the genetic diversity of seeds, cultivated plants and farmed and domesticated animals and their related wild species, including through soundly managed and diversified seed and plant banks at the national, regional and international levels, and promote access to and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, as internationally agreed.

*TARGET 2.A*

*INVEST IN RURAL INFRASTRUCTURE, AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND GENE BANKS*

Increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular least developed countries.

*TARGET 2.B*

*PREVENT AGRICULTURAL TRADE RESTRICTIONS, MARKET DISTORTIONS AND EXPORT SUBSIDIES*

Correct and prevent trade restrictions and distortions in world agricultural markets, including through the parallel elimination of all forms of agricultural export subsidies and all export measures with equivalent effect, in accordance with the mandate of the Doha Development Round.

*TARGET 2.C*

*ENSURE STABLE FOOD COMMODITY MARKETS AND TIMELY ACCESS TO INFORMATION*

Adopt measures to ensure the proper functioning of food commodity markets and their derivatives and facilitate timely access to market information, including on food reserves, in order to help limit extreme food price volatility.

Hola Europe! , Buenos dias España
Bike Jamboree after traveling almost all over the world came back to the old continent! And here we are 😀 Spanish dream team! Stage 33 reports your presence, readiness and desire for adventure 😀 Together we managed to meet only the day before the start of the stage but it did not prevent us from taking a unanimous decision and organized actions under the code name “take over the baton”. Offensive activities for this purpose took place in Gibraltar – the overseas territory of Great Britain, which has long served as a defense point of Europe – the struggles first lasted under the characteristic Rock of Gibraltar, and after regrouping the ranks at Europa Point at the General Sikorski Monument. There you finally took the relay stick and relay bikes @Kross – stage 33 was triumphing, stage 32 was looking longingly at Africa 😊


However, before it happened, some of us had the opportunity to enjoy Spain a few days earlier. Rest of our group could have a taste of the beauty of this country thanks to the wonderful photos passed in stages by Marzena and Ania, who rested and enjoyed their senses before the trip to beautiful Seville. Kevin and Maciej in turn came to Tarifa where they enjoyed the hospitality @High spirit kitesurf for which we thank you very much! Speaking of thank you, we would like to send all of us to the @Tomasz Zakrzewicz and his @Cycle Center in Gibraltar with all our heart. Tomek, who, despite the fact that he did not know us earlier, agreed to accept our mega parcel with the equipment to his bike point, which more often offered to fold the sent bike and re-service, all those that will come from Morocco ❤ this is not the end – Tomek was helpful at every turn and in every unexpected twist. It is impossible to describe how much he did for us and how grateful we are to him. If you ever visit Gibraltar, be sure to visit him because, apart from the fact that he has a well-equipped shop and bicycle workshop, he also has a big heart and a lot of enthusiasm . Thanks again! We cannot forget about thanks to @ Miłosz Bączkowski and the company @Yamoo, which was very involved in organizing the shipment of all our equipment to Gibraltar. Our journey has not yet begun, and we are already experiencing that we cannot do much without the help of another person. Isn’t that wonderful?


But we are here! Managed to! Hot Spain is waiting 🚵‍♀️🚵‍♂️
and … meanwhile, our common room looks like one big battlefield :/ 😀 7 people, 7 bicycles, mass of luggage in one room, and in the air you can feel great excitement at the thought of the waiting route and the adventures associated with it.
Especially since Spain turned out to be much more exotic than we expected and not only due to tropical vegetation, captivating architecture (ornamented, with charming fountains in internal patios and ubiquitous, colorful, ceramic tiles) and romantic streets but also due to the fact that despite the large number of tourists, most people working in this area do not speak English at all so you can feel as if you were in a far more remote corner of the world than Europe. The Spaniards delighted us with their openness and energy for life . A large dose of sunshine and afternoon siestas are probably one of the main factors in the style of life of the local population. On the day of our stay in Algeciras there was a match between two teams from the capital of Spain – Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid. The pubs were full of die-hard football fans who are like religion to them. Emotions reached the zenith 😉Spain are very open in interpersonal contacts. When paying for shopping in the store, people are not limited to good morning and often have much longer conversations, so be patient while queuing. On the streets, it’s not difficult to exchange a smile with a random person and a warm “¡hola¡” ☺️. The picturesque streets in Spain are full of life (unless it’s just a siesta). People sit on chairs in front of their homes and are happy to talk to neighbors … More news soon! Let’s go!

¡Adios!
