GLOBAL FOOD INSECURITY DROPS...FOR NOW


USDA estimates that between 2014 and 2015 food security improved for the 76 countries it analyzed. It estimated the number of food-insecure people fell 9%, from 521 million in 2014 to 475 million in 2015. The share of these countries’ populations that are food insecure is expected to drop from 14.8% in 2014 to 13.4% in 2015. But over the next decade, the number of food- insecure people for the 76 countries is projected to deteriorate, as the share of population that is food insecure rises from 13.4% in 2015 to 15.1% in 2025.
