The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017

  1. 1. Rome | 15 September 2017
  2. 2. After a prolonged decline, world hunger appears to be on the rise again 1 in 9 people are hungry or 815 million people 1 / 8
  3. 3. Chronic child malnutrition (stunting) continues to fall Still, 1 in 4 children or 155 million children are stunted FAO Economic and Social Development Department 2 / 8
  4. 4. Obesity among adults is increasing in all regions FAO Economic and Social Development Department 3 / 8
  5. 5. Progress has slowed: What are the drivers?  Conflict  Climate change and extreme weather events  Economic slowdowns and impacts on social protection policies 4 / 8
  6. 6. The majority of the chronically food insecure and malnourished live in countries affected by conflict 5 / 8
  7. 7. 6 / 8 Conflict, often compounded by climate-related shocks, is a leading cause of severe food crises and recently re-emerged famines
  8. 8. Addressing food insecurity and malnutrition in conflict-affected situations cannot be “business as usual”.  Conflict-sensitive, timely interventions  Building resilience through well integrated humanitarian, development and peace-related interventions  Multi-sectoral investments (agriculture, food, water and sanitation, and education)  Support to governance and peacebuilding 7 / 8
  9. 9. The clear warning signal going forward is: 8 / 8 Accomplishing our ambition of a world without hunger and malnutrition by 2030 will be possible if we renew efforts and find new ways of working.
  10. 10. Thank you
