The newly launched "State of Food Security and Nutrition" report gives an updated estimate of the number of hungry people in the world.

It also provides the latest data on child stunting and wasting as well as on adult and child obesity.

The report is an important measure of global progress towards the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of Zero Hunger, and also offers analysis of the drivers of hunger and malnutrition.

Gilbert Houngbo, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) spoke to Jérôme Longué of UN News, before the launch.
