Summary T his year’s edition of The
State of Food Security
and Nutrition in the
World monitors
progress towards ensuring access to
food for all (UN Sustainable
Development Goal [SDG] Target
2.1), and putting an end to all forms
of malnutrition (SDG Target 2.2).
For the first time, this year’s
report provides two measures of food
insecurity. FAO’s traditional
indicator of the extent of hunger, the
prevalence of undernourishment, is
complemented by the prevalence of
severe food insecurity, which is
estimated based on data collected
from adult individuals worldwide
using the Food Insecurity
Experience Scale (FIES). The FIES is
a new tool to measure people’s
ability to access food, based on
direct interviews. In addition, the
report assesses the trends for six
nutrition indicators: anaemia in
women of reproductive age,
stunting, wasting, overweight,
obesity and levels of exclusive
breastfeeding. Given its enhanced
scope, the traditional partnership of
FAO, IFAD and WFP in preparing
