795 million people undernourished globally (infographic)

In an updated report just released by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nation (FAO), the institution revealed that about 795 million people globally are undernourished.

Down by 167 million people over the last decade, decline has been pronounced in developing regions despite significant population growth. The year 2015 marks the end of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), among them goal MDG 1c (MDG 1c: Between 1990 and 2015, reduce by half the proportion of people who suffer from hunger) with a total of 72 developing countries out of 129 monitored having reached the MDG 1c hunger reduction target.

Where countries failed to meet the targets, it was due to political instability, natural and human-induced disasters resulting in increased vulnerability and food insecurity of the population. Progress has been hindered by less and slower inclusive economic growth and political instability especially in developing regions such as Western Asia and Central Africa. Whereas successes have largely been due to social protection systems that promote income security and access to health care, education and better nutrition.
