We are living in strange times. While a small minority enjoys material abundance and looks forward to the Fourth Industrial Revolution and space tourism, a much larger proportion of the global population faces hunger and food insecurity.

hilorich It creates a lot of comfort for the players. That's why there are so many websites going on.

Due to climate change, the socioeconomic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and various conflicts, the world is doing worse than ever before in terms of hunger eradication. Around 10 per cent of the global population – about 768 million people – faced hunger and undernourishment in 2020. More than 750,000 people are expected to face starvation and death in 2022.

Based on current trends, the world will fall far short of Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG2), which aims to achieve “zero hunger” by 2030.

In Southeast Asia, 7.3 per cent of the region’s population was undernourished while 18.8 per cent faced moderate or severe food insecurity in 2020. As of 2020, 27.4 per cent of Southeast Asia’s children under the age of five – most of them from poor families and rural areas – suffered from stunted growth.

A recent report has suggested that significant progress has been made in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states to address food insecurity and malnutrition in the past few years, but more targeted investments and the scaling-up of nutrition programmes are needed if ASEAN is to meet the SDG2 and 2025 global nutrition targets.
