World Food Assistance 2017: taking stock and looking ahead
This global report provides a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative analysis of trends, challenges and innovative solutions in food assistance at a time of complex emergencies and soaring needs. World Food Assistance 2017 considers the measures pursued by national, regional and international actors to respond to, prepare for and prevent food crises. In 2017 alone such crises have made 108 million people worldwide severely food-insecure. The aim is to build understanding about: the scale, reach and composition of these "food assistance" measures over time and space; current and emerging challenges and opportunities facing food assistance providers and participants; and options for policy-making and investment to boost the relevance and impact of food assistance under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
