    In Brief: The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017 – SOFI 2017
    Also available in:

    A shorter version of the FAO flagship publication The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017 (SOFI), the In Brief is aimed at the media, policy makers and a more general public. SOFI 2017 warns that the long-term declining trend in undernourishment seems to have come to a halt and may have in fact reversed, largely on account of the increased number of ongoing conflicts and the adverse impacts of climate change. Meanwhile, though progress continues to be made in reducing child malnutrition, overweight and obesity are a growing concern in most parts of the world. These and other findings are detailed in this year’s report, which for the first time is published by an expanded partnership, with UNICEF and WHO now joining FAO, IFAD and WFP.

The international community is committed to ending hunger and all forms of malnutrition worldwide by 2030. While much progress has been made, conflict and human-induced and natural disasters are causing setbacks. This year’s The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World warns that the long-term declining trend in undernourishment seems to have come to a halt and may have reversed, largely on account of the above-mentioned factors. Meanwhile, though progress continues to be made in reducing child malnutrition, rising overweight and obesity are a concern in most parts of the world. These and other findings are detailed in the 2017 edition of The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World (formerly, The State of Food Insecurity in the World). For the first time, this year’s report is published by an expanded partnership, with UNICEF and WHO now joining FAO, IFAD and WFP.
