Europe and Central Asia: Regional Overview of Food Insecurity 2016: The Food Insecurity Transition
The Regional overviews of food insecurity provide an overview of key trends in food security and nutrition across FAO's five official regions.
The Regional Overview of Food Insecurity provide an overview of key trends in food security and nutrition across FAO's five official regions. With the Millennium Development Goals, progress has been made in tackling food insecurity across the world. The Europe and Central Asia has halved the proportion of people suffering from hunger. The character of food insecurity in the region has changed substantially, owing to the pro-poor economic growth observed over the past 23 years, particularly in the poorer countries of the region. Today, the main indicators and household food insecurity issues concern malnutrition, rather than physical or economic access or stability of access to food. The publication provides options to address the main malnutrition issues by groups of countries, classified by their predominant food insecurity and malnutrition concerns.
Founded in 1945, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO provides a neutral forum where all nations meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy. The Organization publishes authoritative publications on agriculture, fisheries, forestry and nutrition.
