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.
The European Commission takes a step towards putting resilience at the heart of its work on fighting hunger and poverty, with a new communication on resilience.
The communication entitled "The EU Approach to Resilience: Learning from Food Security Crises" outlines the measures with which the European Union will help vulnerable populations reduce the impact of future crises and disasters.
