2020 Global Report on Food Crises: September 2020 UPDATE In times of COVID‑19

Oct 2020

For the last four years, the Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC) has provided an annual, consensus-based overview of the severity, magnitude and drivers of the world’s food crises.

The GRFC 2020 reported the highest global number of acutely food-insecure people on record. It revealed that in 2019, some 135 million in 55 countries and territories were in need of urgent food, livelihood and nutrition assistance as a result of conflict, weather extremes, economic shocks, or a combination of all three drivers. This figure reflected not only worsening levels of acute food insecurity in many countries, but also the wider availability of food security data, including in previously inaccessible areas or in contexts that had previously yielded poor-quality data.
