On 11 September 2018, the new edition of The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World will be launched by five UN agencies –FAO, IFAD, WFP, UNICEF and WHO.

The report provides an updated estimate of the number of hungry people in the world, including regional and national breakdowns, and the latest data on child stunting and wasting, adult obesity and child overweight and other nutrition indicators.


The report analyses the drivers of hunger and malnutrition, and this year focuses on how climate extremes and variability are threating to erode and reverse gains made in ending hunger and malnutrition.
