THE United Nations (UN) has listed Nigeria among the countries with the most food-insecure population, caused by protracted conflicts and other factors.
The UN revealed this in its Global Report on food crisis, jointly published recently, by its Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), World Food Programme (WFP), and the European Union (EU), warning that the situation might get worse due to the impact of the ongoing war in Ukraine on the global food value chain.
On the global food crisis, the UN noted that the number of people who cannot afford enough to eat daily reached an all-time high in 2021, saying it could hit “appalling” new levels as the global food systems struggle with increasing commodities inflation.
According to the agency, nearly 193 million people in 53 countries suffered acute food insecurity in 2021, due to a “toxic triple combination” of conflict, weather extremes, and economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
