​The State of Food Insecurity in the World is a yearly joint publication by FAO, IFAD, and WFP that raises awareness about global hunger issues and progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. This 2012 publication estimates global undernourishment based on a revised and improved methodology, showing that although progress towards the elimination of hunger has been better than previously believed, the number of people still suffering from chronic hunger remains unacceptably high.
