USDA FORECASTS FOOD INSECURE TO BE HALF WHAT IT IS TODAY IN 2029
Agri-Pulse reports:

USDA's latest analysis of global food security estimates that the world's food-insecure population will fall from 19.3% this year to 9.2% by 2029 as incomes rise and food prices fall.

There are an estimated 728 million people who are food insecure this year, and that number is expected to fall to 399 million over the next 10 years, according to the Economic Research Service.

Those numbers mark improvements from last year's annual assessment, when USDA estimated that there were 782 million food-insecure people in 2018, or 21.1% of the global population. That number was forecast to drop to 446 million, or 10.4% of the population, by 2028.

Keep in mind: Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to continue to have the most acute hunger problem. Some 22.5% of the population there is expected to be food-insecure in 10 years, compared to 35.3% now.
