Humanosphere: USDA: New projections estimate global hunger will drop to 6 percent by 2026
Humanosphere journalist Lisa Nikolau discusses findings from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) most recent International Food Security Assessment, which says the percent of the global population that has inadequate access to food is projected to drop from 17 percent to six percent by 2026. Nikolau notes the report uses a new model that “makes it possible to study the impact of income and prices shocks to global trends in food demand and insecurity” (7/14).
