UN report reveals alarming reality of food security and nutrition globally 

Posted on 19 July 2023

UN agencies have just released their 2023 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report, which reveals the continuation of an increase in hunger levels since the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The findings show between 691 and 783 million people were subjected to hunger in 2022, averaging as 122 million more people than in 2019. The report points to the combination of “conflict, climate extremes and economic slowdowns and downturns, combined with highly unaffordable nutritious foods and growing inequality” as contributing factors.

The report concludes the world is falling short of meeting Sustainable Development Goal 2 targets. It is estimated that 600 million people will be chronically undernourished in 2030.
