Launch of IFPRI’s latest Global Food Policy Report

2015 was a landmark year for the international development community with the passage of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, building on impressive global progress since 1990: extreme poverty, child mortality, and hunger all fell by around half. The 2016 Global Food Policy Report reviews major trends, events, and changes affecting food security and nutrition in 2015 and beyond, and explores how the global food system can best contribute to further reductions in hunger, malnutrition, and poverty while ensuring sustainable use of the world’s resources.

Launch on Mar 31, 2016 - 12:15 pm to 01:45 pm EDT http://bit.ly/1VK0W9c

International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) -This year marks the tenth year of the Global Hunger Index (GHI), a tool for measuring the state of hunger at the global, regional, and national levels. The 2015 GHI reveals that despite a 27 percent decrease in hunger scores among developing countries, hunger levels in 52 of 117 countries in the 2015 Global Hunger Index remain “serious” (44 countries) or “alarming” (8 countries). This year’s report also focuses on the relationship between conflict and hunger, noting that many countries with the highest and worst GHI scores tend to be those engaged in or recently emerged from war.

The Journal of Development Studies has devoted a special issue to several studies from Africa and South Asia that explore the links between household agricultural production and human nutrition. The citations have been added to the Agriculture, Nutrition and Health group here on Mendeley. The articles are accessible here: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/fjds20/current#.Ve9ZHRFVikq
