Overview

The State of the Food Insecurity in the World 2012 presents new estimates of undernourishment based on a revised and improved methodology. These show that progress in reducing hunger during the past 20 years has been better than previously believed. However, the number of people suffering from chronic undernourishment is still unacceptably high, and eradication of hunger remains a major global challenge. This year's report also highlights the importance of developing programs that will ensure "nutrition-sensitive" growth, including supporting increased dietary diversity, improving access to safe drinking water, sanitation and health services, and educating consumers regarding adequate nutrition and childcare practices.
