Editors: Angela N. Rivera
Book Description:
The combination of food and economic crises has pushed the number of food-insecure or hungry people worldwide to historic levels. More than 1 billion people are undernourished, according to estimates by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). In addition, the U.N. Secretary General reports that the proportion of hungry people in the world rose in 2008 as a result of the global food and economic crises. The rise in the proportion of hungry people threatens achievement of the U.N.'s Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of reducing the proportion of hungry people in the world by half by 2015. This book explores the current economic and food crisis in the world today as it effects global food security. (Imprint: Nova)
