    The world has the capacity to produce enough food to feed everyone adequately. Yet despite progress made over the past two decades, at least 795 million people in the world, or just over one in every nine human beings, still suffer from hunger on a daily basis. While it has decreased from 18.6 percent in 1990-92 to 10.9 percent in 2014-16, this persistently high number remains unacceptable.

    Over the past two decades, leaders worldwide have made various pledges to reduce hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. At the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) in 2014, world leaders renewed their commitment to establish and implement national policies aimed at eradicating malnutrition and transforming food systems to make nutritious diets available to all. Many countries have made good progress towards their commitments and are on track to meet the Millennium Development G oal hunger targets. Nevertheless, much remains to be done. With the MDGs coming to an end, 805 million people still suffer from chronic hunger, 161 million children under five remain chronically malnourished and over 2 billion people are affected by micronutrient deficiencies. It is time that the global community takes more decisive actions to address the structural causes of hunger and malnutrition in addition to addressing immediate needs. Strengthening the commitment of all stakeholders for a food-secure world and supporting them in turning commitment to action is the essence of the FAO strategy through its Strategic Objective 1 (SO1).
