Perhaps you know that the Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that there are 868 million people chronically hungry in the world. But did you know that 1 in 3 children in developing countries suffer from stunted growth because they are malnourished? This and other facts and figures from Gordon Conway’s recently released book, One Billion Hungry: Can We Feed the World? can be found in a new briefing paper by Katy Wilson. It lays out some, often startling, statistics relating to the challenges and solutions to achieving global food security.
