Food insecurity map

Millions of people, perhaps as many as a billion people, suffer from hunger and inadequate, intermittent access to food. Malnutrition in children is a massive global health problem. And “food insecurity” is on the increase due to rising food prices, agricultural losses, instability and an inequitable food distribution industry.

InterAction, with funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), has developed Food Security Aid Map to provide detailed project-level information on food security and agriculture work being done by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The site can be browsed by location, sector, organization or project.

Below is a screen grab. Here is a link to the interactive map.
