2017 hunger report: fragile environments, resilient communities
This new report by Bread For The World explains how fragility stands in the way of ending hunger and extreme poverty. Many of the fragile nations are especially affected by climate change, so climate-resilient agricultural development is important.
By 2030, two-thirds of the world’s poor will be living in fragile states, as reported by Bread for the World Institute in a new report. Bread for the World Institute’s 2017 Hunger Report, Fragile Environments, Resilient Communities, explains how state fragility stands in the way of ending hunger and extreme poverty. Fragile states are countries where high rates of hunger and poverty are compounded by civil conflict, poor governance, and vulnerability to climate change.
