Food insecurity in the world

“State of Food Insecurity in the World” (SOFI 2015). This is the title of the annual report on hunger prepared by the three UN agencies, FAO, IFAD and WFP.

The document confirmed a positive trend, which has seen the number of people suffering from hunger in decline globally, 216 million in less than 25 years ago (1990-92).

Eradicating hunger is one of the largest and most difficult challenges of our time. The data are encouraging and indicate that the Millennium Development Goal of halving the proportion of undernourished people by 2015 is still achievable.

To arouse concerns are however still many countries historically poor in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Hunger in Africa is a great challenge and although there have been many steps forward, the situation is still critical. Mainly because of conflicts between states, markets do not work, several countries have problems of desertification, and others have problems of investment in agriculture. The goal is the complete eradication of hunger, focusing on these areas still in critical conditions. An Expo 2015 are addressing these issues in numerous meetings.

An example was the International Forum of Agriculture where 50 Ministers of Agriculture, 370 delegates representing 115 countries and international organizations from all continents have examined the major commitments to the fight against hunger and climate change. A meeting of high profile institutional to discuss concrete solutions and commitments for the future.

Achieve the goal Zero Hunger can.
