This report presents an overview of global food security and nutrition. Continued, growing, and new threats to food security paint a troubling picture to the future of food security and nutrition: growing food costs, disrupted supply chains do to conflict, frequent and severe extreme climate events, etc.
Reacting to the report, Gabriella Waaijman, Global Humanitarian Director at Save the Children, said:
“It is deeply alarming and frankly shameful that the number of people going hungry is on the rise. Make no mistake: children and their families are facing the worst global hunger crisis in decades. If we fail to act now, many lives will be lost and years of development gains will go down the drain due to a deadly combination of conflict, the climate crisis and the economic crisis fueled by the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine.
