The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2012 is released

FAO's jointly published The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2012 (SOFI) is released today - and it shows that one in eight people in the world was suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2010-12. The UN report is published by FAO and its Rome-based partners WFP and IFAD. While the global number of hungry people declined by almost 130 million between 1990-92 and 2010-12, the report says global progress in reducing hunger has slowed and levelled off in the past five years. Director-General José Graziano da Silva presented a joint press conference with the other agencies' leaders at Rome headquarters today. For his reaction and further details, click here.
