Global food security and nutrition

The United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) recently released report “The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World” shows that hunger is again on the rise. The report shows that the prevalence of undernourishment has stabilised, but the absolute number of undernourished people continues to rise.

The report notes that whilst world population has grown steadily, many countries have not witnessed sustained growth. The economy of many countries has not grown as much as expected and factors including conflict and climate change have led to major changes in the way food is produced, distributed and consumed, creating new food security and nutrition challenges.
