The Global Food Crisis

In 2012 the UN pledged to eradicate hunger by 2030. With just eight years left, reaching that target is becoming ever more challenging and humanitarian organisations are increasingly developing innovative blended solutions in response. We are in the midst of a Global Food Crisis with 345 million people who are, or are at high risk of, being acutely food insecure. This is an increase of 200 million since pre-pandemic levels.
