Description
 
In 1996, world leaders pledged to reduce the number of hungry people to 400 million by 2015. This report provides the estimates in 1999 of the number of chronically hungry people in the developing world and introduces the first comparable estimates ever made of the number of people who go hungry in the industrialized countries and countries in transition. Provides data on progress and reversals during the 1990s and highlights countries that have achieved the greatest gains or suffered the most severe setbacks over the past 2 decades. Analyzes some of the underlying factors that contributed to gains and setbacks in these countries and examines the impact of short-term “shocks” such as war, natural disaster or financial crisis. Illustrations.
