Insights on Ending Famines, Creating Food Security, and Fostering Thriving Livelihoods in a Changing World

Global hunger remains one of the most significant development challenges of our time. Nearly 795 million people worldwide are estimated to be chronically undernourished, and the threat of famine has reemerged at levels not seen for decades. Climate change, population growth, environmental degradation, urbanization, and conflict all put pressure on global food production and distribution, and hamper efforts to end hunger.
