According to the World Bank’s latest food security update, seven countries, including Nigeria, Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Haiti, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen, are experiencing “catastrophic levels of food insecurity,” indicating the threat of famine.

The report also highlights the highest number of people experiencing crisis and worse acute food insecurity since the Global Report on Food Crises began in 2017.

The report emphasizes the need for well-coordinated early warning systems and anticipatory action frameworks to prepare and organize responses before a crisis.

It also calls on governments to maintain supportive business environments for agrifood value chains, build adaptive social protection programs that integrate gender and climate goals, repurpose agricultural support funds, and better leverage private sector funds for long-term resilience.

The report further reveals that domestic food price inflation remains high worldwide, with many countries experiencing double-digit inflation.

The most affected countries are in Africa, North America, Latin America, South Asia, Europe, and Central Asia.

The report also reveals that 258 million people in 58 countries faced crisis or worse levels of acute food insecurity in 2022.
