Voices of the Hungry

Monitoring food insecurity worldwide through people’s experiences

The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017

After steadily declining for over a decade, global hunger appears to be on the rise once more, with multiple forms of malnutrition threatening the health of millions.

The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World warns that the greater number of conflicts, whose impacts are often exacerbated by climate-related shocks, is one of the main drivers behind this shift. This is threatening to derail the international commitment to end hunger and all forms of malnutrition by 2030.

The report also examines the ways in which food insecurity can trigger conflicts, and provides valuable insights into how food security can help prevent the outbreak of unrest and violence.

Thanks to the collaboration of five UN agencies, with WHO and UNICEF joining IFAD, WFP and FAO, this report is a first step towards a comprehensive global analysis of the links between food security and nutrition.

Data on Greenhouse Gas emissions Intensities
This data domain provides basic information on the amount of greenhouse gases emitted per unit agricultural product, within the farm gate, for meat, milk, eggs, rice and other cereals, by country and year, over the period 1961-2014. They are based on FAOSTAT emissions and production data, and will be updated each year as new data for the underlying statistics become available.

FAO Statistical Programme of Work 2016-2017
The FAO Statistical Programme of Work (SPW) is a collaborative effort that is overseen by the Chief Statistician and supported by the Inter-Departmental Working Group on Statistics. These two mechanisms ensure strengthened coordination and cooperation on statistical matters and guarantee the high quality of FAO data.
