Developing strategies for "Zero Hunger"- Angel Wings
Uthuma Lebbe Muhammed Rijah, Santhujan Vijeyakumar, Thilina Uvindasiri, Anuruddha Rathnayake and Isuru Weerakoon

Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG2) “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture” must be given priority for a country to achieve its overall sustainable development objectives. SDG2 is intrinsically linked to all 17 SDG goals, globally adopted in 2022 by countries now in the process of nationalizing them. The SDG 2, Zero Hunger, seeks to simultaneously address global environmental sustainability and food security challenges. The Sri Lanka has also declared 2022 as the Year of Alleviating Poverty. We must consider how much food is wasted globally each year. These are consumable foods that may be easily distributed or donated to individuals in need. Every year, over 1.3 billion tons of food are lost or wasted. That equates to almost one-third of all food produced for human use worldwide. 30% are grains, 40-50% are root crops, fruits, and vegetables, 20% are oil seeds, meat and dairy, and 35% are fish. Sri Lanka is 65th out of 116 countries in Global Hunger Index [9]. Among all the districts in Sri Lanka, Colombo, Mulativu, Kegalle and Rathnapura exceeds 52% in percentage of food insecurity in people which means there are more people in these districts who are not getting enough food compared other areas in the country. The project Angel aligns with unicef’s SDG-2 which they are targeted to end world hunger in 2030. The project deliverable will be an android mobile app which directly involves catering to the hunger needs for people who are in need. The app will consist of the capabilities of donating excess food, donating dry rations, requesting for cooked food or rations, collect or delivery of cooked food, excess food or rations.

M.I.Fathima Nihla, W.A.D.A.Wicrama Arachchi, W.M.D.H.Wijekoon, W.T.Sanduni and Jagath Wickramarathne

Even more concerning is the fact that air pollution appears to be becoming worse every day as a result of either natural or man-made pollution, such as a large forest fire. The lack of a real-time monitoring system prevents the authorities from knowing the current air quality conditions. Therefore, it is clear that air quality monitoring is now a crucial component of smart city solutions. This research aims in the use of technology to track air quality in Sri Lankan cities. To monitor the air quality in metropolitan areas, a qualitative study technique has been adopted. A Figma prototype of the suggested system has also been put into practice. The findings of this study show that information on which cities have the best, adequate, and worst air quality may be obtained through air quality monitoring systems. Additionally, the applications provide real-time data on air quality. The drawback is that only information from major cities is comprehensive and easily available.
