Every ninth inhabitant of the world suffers from hunger - UN report

About 805 million people, or every ninth inhabitant of the planet, suffer from hunger. This is stated in a UN report published in Rome. The State of World Food Security is published annually by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Program (WFP).

"Report confirmed the positive trend towards a decrease in the number of hungry people in the world - by more than 100 million over the past decade and more than 200 million since 1990-92, - the FAO reports. - The general tendency to reduce hunger in developing countries means that the Millennium Development Goal of halving the proportion of those who are hungry for 2015 is still achievable if immediate and necessary measures are accelerated. To date, 63 developing countries have already achieved this goal, and six more countries must reach it by 2015. "

The report notes that despite significant overall progress, some regions continue to lag behind. In sub-Saharan Africa, one out of every four people is chronically undernourished, while in Asia, the most populous region of the world, most of the hungry live - 526 million people.

The conclusions and recommendations of SOPH 2014 will be discussed by governments, civil society, as well as representatives of the private sector at the meeting of the Committee on World Food Security, which will be held at FAO headquarters in Rome 13-18 October. The report will also be the focus of the Second International Conference on Nutrition in Rome 19-21 November, organized jointly by FAO and the World Health Organization.
