Food and Nutrition Insecurity in Latin America and the Caribbean

Despite a prolonged period of substantial progress on the social and economic front in Latin America and the Caribbean, large segments of the population are still suffering from food insecurity and chronic undernutrition. Persistent inequities in income distribution and access to social protection networks mean that the members of more vulnerable households in the poorer areas of the region’s countries receive insufficient food and nutrition, which impedes their normal development.

It is our hope that this work will make a positive contribution to the debate and help the region’s countries achieve tangible progress in the eradication of hunger and chronic undernutrition.
