World Hunger Day

The global community set 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015. One of them was to end world hunger by 2030.

World hunger

For several years, the world hunger curve was steadily decreasing. We observe that, since 2015, this is no longer the case. According to the Global Network Against Food Crises, it appears that in 2021, there were almost 200 million people in more than 50 countries affected by “acute” food insecurity.

More serious, this figure was an increase of almost 40 million people compared to 2020.

The United Nations’ “zero hunger” goal by 2030 is now more than ever in jeopardy…

Food insecurity

The causes are unfortunately well known and sometimes overlap:

Economic crises

Wars and conflicts

Global warming

We can add to this the consequences of the Covid 19 health crisis, without forgetting the increase in inequalities and the situations of extreme poverty encountered in many places around the world.
