Washington. The problem of hunger and malnutrition in the world has been increasing steadily over the past three years. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) released a report on Monday. According to this, in 2018 82.10 million people were forced to sleep hungry every night. Their number was 81.10 million in 2017. Currently 14.9 million children in the world are battling with hunger problems
According to the report, due to climate change and war situation situation has increased the problem of malnutrition and hunger in the world. The UN has targeted that by 2030 this problem should be completely eliminated so that people have physical and mental development. According to Head of World Food Program, David Basley, we can not achieve the goal of zero starvation by 2030. It is difficult, but it is difficult.
'Without peace can not be achieved in the world of food security'
According to David, the media talk more about Braxtil and Donald Trump compared to hungry children. It's been a wrong move. Without food security, we can not maintain peace and stability in the world. At present, food security situation is very bad due to malnutrition. Without a good economy and social plans, it can not be eliminated.
