The Global Network Against Food Crises published the “Global Food Crisis Report,” a group of UN agencies and governmental and non-governmental organizations.

The main conclusions of this report are: Yemen, Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Syria, Sudan, Nigeria, and Haiti are the ten countries with the most severe global food crisis in 2019, with a total of 88 million hungry people. It accounts for 66% of the world’s hungry people.

In addition, the report shows that it was escalated to the same famine as the top 10 countries.


As of the end of 2019, 135 million people in 55 countries and regions were in severe food insecurity, more than half of them lived in Africa, about 40 million people lived in the Middle East and Asia, and the remaining less than 20 million people were in Latin America and the Caribbean area.

The international background of the report

According to the above report, long before the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, the global food supply situation deteriorated. The global population increase in the food crisis in 2019 is the largest in the past four years, and the total number of hungry people has reached 821 million.

Since the end of 2019, the outbreaks of locusts in Africa, India, and Pakistan, the forest fires in Australia, and the new crown pneumonia epidemic have occurred out of the world. The new crown pneumonia epidemic and the African desert locust outbreak have increased the uncertainty of the supply of global agricultural products, which has caused fluctuations in the food market.

After the global outbreak of new pneumonia in 2020, people hoarded foods.


Some countries have also banned the export of agricultural products, including Vietnam’s suspension of rice exports since March 24; Kazakhstan has stopped exporting agricultural products such as wheat, carrots, sugar, and potatoes; and Serbia has stopped exporting products such as sunflower oil.
Many countries have adopted measures such as customs clearance, air navigation bans, and cargo embargoes to prevent the spread of the epidemic, which have caused some agricultural product futures prices to rise, and the grain supply and demand situation and price trends are complicated.

Against this background, the report of the relevant UN agencies was released.
