International Food Security Assessment, 2013-2023
Birgit Meade (au); Stacey rosen (au)
Food insecurity in the 76 countries included in this report is expected to remain virtually unchanged, but with some distributional changes, between 2012 and 2013. The total number of food-insecure people is estimated at 707 million in 2013, up 3 million from 2012. Over the longer term, the food security situation is projected to deteriorate. Food-insecure people are defined as those consuming less than the nutritional target of roughly 2,100 calories per day per person. By 2023, the number of food-insecure people is projected to increase nearly 23% to 868 million, slightly faster than population growth, so the share of the population that is food insecure is projected to increase from 20.4% to 21.5%. The distribution gap -- the amount of additional food needed to bring people in all income deciles up to the nutritional target -- is projected to increase 28% by 2023, meaning that food insecurity in these countries is expected to intensify over the next 10 years. Despite improvements, Sub-Saharan Africa is projected to remain the most food-insecure region in the world. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
