Hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.
If female farmers had the same access to resources as their male counterparts, the number of the world’s hungry could be reduced by 150 million people.
870 million people currently suffer from hunger. 98 percent of these people live in developing countries, with the largest proportion living in Asia and the Pacific.
Another 24 million children could be hungry by the year 2050 due to climate change and irregular weather patterns.
According to the World Food Programme, hunger is the “single biggest solvable problem” facing the world today. It costs just $0.25 per day to provide a child with the nutrients he or she needs to live.
