3. The Obama Administration’s Feed the Future Initiative

The global food price crisis of 2007-2008 and the global economic crisis resulted in an increase in the proportion and absolute number of hungry people worldwide to historic levels, over 1 billion in 2009. In 2010, the estimate of hungry people in the world declined to 925 million, a decrease of about 9.6%. The vast majority of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries ; South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa account for 63% and 26% of the total, respectively.
