UN: Hunger reached alarming ten-year high within 2017

13.09.2018 20:12 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) With food deprivation on the rise due to conflict and climate change, more people went hungry within 2017 than at any time within the previous decade, UN Radio says referring to the UN annual multi-agency flagship report titled the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World (published jointly by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization (WHO). As to the report, the number of undernourished globally has grown to 821 million within 2017; meaning that one of every nine people didnt have enough to eat. «We now have three years of global hunger or chronic deprivation», Cindy Holleman, Senior Economist at FAO, told while commenting on the report. «Many governments and organizations had made a lot of achievements in reducing hunger and it had been falling for 10–15 years,» she said, adding that «the levels of hunger are now where they were, almost a decade ago.» As to the report, presently some progress continues to be made as for the child stunting declining; however, levels remain very high with nearly 151 million children aged under five (22%) being affected by stunting. In addition, wasting continues to affect over 51 million children aged under five which places them at higher risk of morbidity and mortality. Besides, touching upon the adult obesity, the report highlights that the situation is also getting worse. More than one of eight adults within the world is now endangering their health from being overweight (or more than 672 million).
