The data in this report shows that the number of acutely food-insecure people in need of urgent assistance in the world is rising.

Global Food and Nutrition Security

The Global Report on Food Crises tracks the numbers and locations of acutely food-insecure people most in need of emergency food, nutrition and livelihood assistance during the peak or worst point in 2019.

The report is the result of a joint, consensus-based assessment of acute food insecurity situations around the world by 16 partner organizations.

It is facilitated by the Food Security Information Network, which provides the core coordination and technical support to pillar 1 of the Global Network Against Food Crises.
