The world faces a huge challenge of achieving sustainable food and nutrition security for a growing population with more diverse consumption patterns in the face of increasingly scarce natural resources and climate change. This challenge is most severe in developing countries where rates of poverty remain high. Despite recent progress, FAO estimates that more than 800 million people worldwide are hungry –consuming less than the minimum number of calories needed to sustain an active and healthy life and an estimated 160 million children are stunted, seriously impairing their future quality of life and contribution to society.
