Targets and Indicators with Data Availability

Note: The data may be updated periodically as more information become available.

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.

Indicator 2.1.1 | Prevalence of undernourishment

The burden of undernourishment is low in Singapore. Hence, Singapore does not routinely collect data on this indicator.

ASEAN Priority SDG Indicator 

Indicator 2.1.2 | Prevalence of moderate or severe food insecurity in the population, based on the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES)

The burden of food insecurity is low in Singapore. Hence, Singapore does not routinely collect data on this indicator.



End All Forms of Malnutrition

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.

Indicator 2.2.1 | Prevalence of stunting (height for age <-2 standard deviation from the median of the World Health Organization (WHO) Child Growth Standards) among children under 5 years of age

The burden of stunting is low in Singapore. Hence, Singapore does not routinely collect data on this indicator.

ASEAN Priority SDG Indicator 

Indicator 2.2.2 | Prevalence of malnutrition (weight for height >+2 or <-2 standard deviation from the median of the WHO Child Growth Standards) among children under 5 years of age, by type (wasting and overweight)


The burden of wasting is low in Singapore. Hence, Singapore does not routinely collect data on this indicator.



Due to COVID-19, the height and weight measurements of Primary 1 students were suspended from Apr-Dec 2020. The 2020 figure was based on a representative sample of the cohort taken from Jan-Mar 2020.

ASEAN Priority SDG Indicator 



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.

Indicator 2.5.2 | Proportion of local breeds classified as being at risk of extinction

Not applicable as there are no local breeds reported to exist in Singapore.



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.

Indicator 2.A.2 | Total official flows (official development assistance plus other official flows) to the agriculture sector

Not applicable. Singapore is a developing country and does not provide official development assistance. We undertake South-South capacity building programmes with other developing countries.



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.

Indicator 2.B.1 | Agricultural Export Subsidies

Not applicable as Singapore does not provide export subsidies in line with our World Trade Organisation obligations.



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.

Indicator 2.C.1 | Indicator of food price anomalies


Data are taken from United Nations Global SDG Database.
Data refer to the twelve month average of the monthly price anomalies and are defined as (i) abnormally high if the Indicator of Food Price Anomalies (IFPA) >= 1; (ii) moderately high if 0.5 =< IFPA< 1; and (iii) normal if -0.5 =< IFPA < 0.5.
