New UN report reveals that world hunger is still not going down

According to a recently launched report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the world is off-track to meet most of the Sustainable Development Goal targets linked to hunger, food security and nutrition.
The number of undernourished people in the world has been on the rise since 2015 and is back to levels seen in 2010–2011. In other words, more than 820 million people are still hungry today. This underscores the immense challenge of achieving the Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger by 2030, says a new edition of the annual The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report.

Eradicating hunger and food insecurity, as well as ensuring sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, is a central pillar of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and a prerequisite for the achievement of the entire 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
