33 Millionen bleiben in Brasilien hungrig

By Jordi Bou

June 9, 2022 - Eine nationale Umfrage hat ergeben, dass die Zahl der hungrigen Menschen in Brasilien um 73% in weniger als zwei Jahren gestiegen ist, von 19,1 Millionen auf 33,1 Millionen. Ein "historischer Rückschlag" für das Land, das riesige Erfolge der Armutsbekämpfung aufzuweisen hatte.

Around 33.1 million people in Latin America’s largest economy are living in hunger, up from 19.1 million in 2020, said the report from the Brazilian Network for Research on Food Security.

Around 125 million people – more than half (58.7%) of Brazil’s population of 213 million – suffer from mild, moderate or severe hunger.

According to the report, the main factors responsible for the growth in the number of Brazilians suffering from food insecurity are “the continued dismantling of public policies, the worsening of the economic crisis, the increase in social inequalities and the second year of the Covid-19 pandemic”.
