15. SOUNDBITE (English) Arif Hussain, Chief Economist and Deputy Director, World Food Programme (WFP):
“We are talking about conflict, climate and economic marginalization. The unfortunate part is that it is one more year of the same story. So, people who were marginalized, who were destitute last year, are even more destitute this year. And they are completely, totally in many many places, particularly in conflict places, they are reliant on food assistance.”

STORYLINE:

Ahead of World Food Day, the World Food Programme (WFP) said more than 800 million people, one in nine people globally, are facing chronic hunger and are unable to meet their basic food requirements.

World Food Day is marked on Wednesday (16 Oct). WFP said, for the most part, the causes of hunger remain the same – conflict, the climate crisis and economic marginalization.

WFP said it was working to bring food assistance to more than 80 million of those worst affected by hunger in more than 80 countries around the world. These include countries like Yemen, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

WFP said the number of undernourished people in 2017 increased to 821 million from around 804 million in 2016. That is more than the population of the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan combined.

WFP said some two billion people live in countries where development is affected by fragility, conflict and high levels of violence, and about half the world’s poor live in fragile or conflict-affected states. It noted that 60 percent of the hungry people in the world live in war zones.

WFP added that some 95 million people are facing acute food insecurity while also affected by climate extremes, and 22 million people are displaced annually due to climate-related disasters. WFP warned that 100 million people could be forced into extreme poverty due to climate change.

Last year, there were 28 million new displacements associated with conflict (10.8 million) and disasters (17.2 million) across 148 countries and territories. More than 60 percent of new displacements were triggered by disasters and 39 percent by conflict and violence.
