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.
