The global pandemic has caused the food situation to deteriorate in many parts of the world.
In a context where more than one billion tons of food are wasted each year, the UN Secretary General has convened a Summit on Food Systems in September. He hopes to create momentum for bold new measures to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Recent statistics released by the United Nations reveal that 19.1% of the African population is undernourished, while the rate is 8.3% in Asia and 7.4% in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Several anti-hunger campaigns are organized at various times of the year to try to meet the needs of vulnerable populations.
