Africans Worst Affected by Undernourishment

Africa lags behind in tackling hunger with reports showing that over 25 percent of Africa’s population suffer from acute undernourishment

Africa is lagging behind in tackling hunger with reports showing that over 25 percent of Africa’s population suffer from acute undernourishment.

According to the 2014 Hunger Map and a report titled the ‘State of Food Insecurity in the World: Strengthening the Enabling Environment for Food Security and Nutrition’ jointly prepared by World Food Programme (WFP), the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the number of hungry people has fallen by over 200 million since 1992.

The report says 805 million people, or one in nine of the world’s population, go to bed hungry each night, adding that sub-Saharan Africa is in the worst condition worldwide with one in four of its people suffering from undernourishment.
