Global Parliamentary Summit against Hunger and Malnutrition

During the first decade of the century, sub-Saharan Africa made sound progress in its fight against hunger with the region witnessing a decline in the prevalence and number of undernourished people. However, in 2015 and 2016, there was a reversal of this trend as even the prevalence of undernourished increased.

The fight against hunger is slowing and as we reassess progress we are concerned that the number of hungry people in Asia and the Pacific region may have already begun to rise. This means that many countries in this region risk not meeting the 2030 target of ending food insecurity. 

The Panorama of Food and Nutrition Security in Latin America and the Caribbean 2017, published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), reports for the first time on the progress made by countries in the Region towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Europe and Central Asia region encompasses a great deal of natural, economic and social diversity. As a result, the nature and extent of food insecurity problems vary throughout the region.

On 25 September 2015, the 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – including 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets – committing the international community to end poverty and hunger and achieve sustainable development between 2016 and 2030.
