More than 820 million people do not have enough to eat, corresponding to about one in every nine people in the world.

A broader look at food insecurity beyond severe levels and hunger reveals that an additional 1.3 billion people have experienced food insecurity, meaning they did not have regular access to nutritious and sufficient food.

The combination moderate and severe levels of food insecurity brings the estimated total to 26.4% of the world population, amounting to 2 billion people.
