Crise alimentar global em crescendo

By Ninian Carter

April 27, 2020 - Havia 135 milhões de pessoas a viver em crise alimentar em 2019 – acima dos 113 milhões um ano antes, segundo o Programa Alimentar Mundial.

The number of people battling acute hunger and suffering from malnutrition is on the rise, according to the 2020 Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC) – and it may be underestimating the severity due to an inability to collate accurate data in some regions.

Additionally, the upheaval that has been set in motion by the Covid-19 pandemic may push even more communities into deeper distress.

At a time of global challenges, ranging from conflicts to climate shocks to economic instability, António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, states that the world must redouble its efforts to defeat hunger and malnutrition – essential for achieving a more stable and resilient world.
