Information

Conflict and extreme climate events are contributing to rising levels of food insecurity and malnutrition. In 2018, some 113 million people in 53 countries experienced acute food insecurity. The Global Report on Food Crises provides the latest estimates of severe hunger and an analysis of countries chronically vulnerable to food crisis.

The report's findings are a powerful call for strengthened cooperation that links prevention, preparedness, and response to address urgent humanitarian needs and for addressing the root causes of the problem, including climate change, economic shocks, conflict, and displacement
