Food insecurity doubles in Central African RepublicListen /
The number of people in the Central African Republic who are not getting enough food has doubled over the past year to 1.6 million.
The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) said in a joint report that food insecurity has worsened due to the widespread conflict that has affected the country since December 2012.
The conflict has caused the destruction of livelihoods across the country, as a result of the loss of food and cash crops, livestock, and crucial productive assets.
Sandra Ferrari asked Dominique Burgeon, the Director of FAO's Emergency and Rehabilitation Division, about the report.
