Moderate/Severe Food Insecurity

The percentage of the total population estimated to be experiencing difficulties in obtaining sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for healthy living. Moderate food insecurity implies compromised food quality and quantity, accompanied by concerns about food access due to financial constraints. Severe food insecurity extends to individuals who have entirely depleted their food supply, even going without meals for days. Data presented are the three-year average between 2020 and 2022 and are from the FAO.
