Launch of The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017 - Building resilience for peace and food security


12/09/2017

The international community has committed to ending hunger and malnutrition by 2030. But can we overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of meeting this target?

The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017, launching on Friday, September 15, offers some answers. This year’s edition focuses specifically on the dramatic effects that ongoing conflicts are having on levels of undernourishment across the world, and sets out a path to help build peace and food security for all.

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