Food systems

On a global level, food and nutritional insecurity persists and is evolving towards new types of food imbalances. While the number of people suffering from hunger (calorie deficit) is struggling to drop below 800 million, the world is facing an epidemic of over- and "junk" consumption (overweight), which concerns more than a quarter of the global population, including in the South and in middle-income countries.
