The Global Report on Food Crises is the result of a joint, consensus-based assessment of acute food insecurity situations around the world by 16 partner organizations.
It is facilitated by the Food Security Information Network, which provides the core coordination and technical support to pillar 1 of the Global Network Against Food Crises’s.
The report tracks the numbers and locations of acutely food-insecure people most in need of emergency food, nutrition and livelihood assistance during the peak or worst point in 2019.

Halving anaemia prevalence by 2030 requires both efforts to scale-up proven nutrition interventions and the development of innovative solutions to address emerging bottlenecks.
Essential nutrition actions such as supplementation and food fortification with iron, face some technological challenges that are limiting their use at large scale. These barriers range from low acceptability and adherence to supplements to losses of available iron in a food matrix.
Universities and research institutions are working to create promising (and exciting!) options that can be implemented in the near term.
Please join this webinar where we will discuss novel iron compounds for food fortification and supplementation, lentil fortification and parenteral iron supplementation as a public health intervention.

In April 2017, UNSCN's annual reporting lines to ECOSOC were re-established as per ECOSOC decision 2018/207.
In 2020, UNSCN submitted a report for 2019 to ECOSOC that will be presented at the ECOSOC 2020 Management Segment.
The report is available in all UN languages.
The UNSCN Secretariat has prepared a short questionnaire to understand the changes people are making in their everyday life due to the impact of COVID-19. The results will inform UNSCN publications which examine the consequences of COVID-19 on people’s food environments and look to help people adapt as well as possible.
You can take the questionnaire in English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish; Arabic, Chinese and Russian will become available by the end of this week. It will only take 5 minutes of your time!
Results from this survey will be made available in compiled form at UNSCN.org.
The survey is open until Monday 24th of April 2020.
