Understanding Global Food Security

The world’s agricultural output is sufficient today to feed all its people, at least in
purely arithmetical terms. Nonetheless, one out of nine people in the world goes
to bed hungry every day. And this happens despite the fact that the right of
everyone to be free from hunger – that is to have access to food in sufficient
quantity and quality – is a human right which is entrenched in terms of binding
international law in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural
Rights (UN Social Covenant). There are many reasons why people do not have
adequate access to food, but hunger is never acceptable
