In 2023, 281 .6 million people or 21 .5 percent of the analysed population faced high levels of acute food insecurity in 59 food-crisis countries/territories.

The Global Report on Food Crises 2024 provides analysis and evidence on acute food insecurity and malnutrition in countries/territories identified as being in food crisis in 2023. Read this report to help shape advocacy and policies to save lives, build resilience and secure the future.

This crisis demands an urgent response. Using the data in this report to transform food systems and address the underlying causes of food insecurity and malnutrition will be vital. So will finance. Funding is not keeping pace with need. Governments must boost the resources available for sustainable development – by putting our proposals for an SDG Stimulus in support of developing countries into action, and fully funding humanitarian operations.
Humanity can and must do better. Together, with commitment and concerted action, we can create a world where hunger has no home.
