The State of Food Security and nutrition in the World

On July 12th, 2021 the FAO, together with the IFAD, UNICEF, WFP and WHO launched the SOFI 2021(The State of Food Security and nutrition in the World).

This report presents the first global assessment of food insecurity and malnutrition for 2020 and offers some indication of what hunger might look like by 2030 in a scenario further complicated by the enduring effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also includes new estimates of the cost and affordability of healthy diets, which provide an important link between the food security and nutrition indicators and the analysis of their trends. Altogether, the report highlights the need for a deeper reflection on how to better address the global food security and nutrition situation.
