2021 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World

SOFI 2021

This year, the SOFI report offers the first analysis of data from the impacts of Covid-19. The results show a dramatic rise in the rates of food insecurity and malnutrition in all its forms. 118 million more people faced hunger in 2020 than in 2019 and close to 12% of the global population - 928 million people - were severely food insecure in 2020. Around 660 million people may still face hunger in 2030 - 30 million more people than in a scenario in which the pandemic had not occurred and nearly 1 in 3 people (2.37 billion) did not have access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food in 2020 - an increase of almost 320 million people in just one year
