Worldwide, one person in three is malnourished today and one in two could be malnourished by 2030 if nothing is done. While hunger remains a critical concern, overweight and obesity are rapidly increasing all over the world, including in low-income countries. Therefore malnutrition in all its forms - undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight and obesity – now affects all countries. Economic growth alone will not be enough to end hunger and malnutrition. Nutrition has to be set as an explicit objective in coherent and cross-sectoral strategies, policies and programmes.
In this context, the report analyses how food systems influence people’s food choices and nutritional status. Join us as the lead author presents key findings and commentators reflect on elements of the report.
