Brazil: from the exit of the Hunger Map to international benchmark
SÃO PAULO AND ROME - Whether it is because of the use of technologies in the field, advances in productivity or public policies in the area of agriculture and food, Brazil is on the rise and has captured the eyes of the world. On leaving the Hunger Map in 2014, the country reduced the number of people in food insecurity situation by 84% in 24 years, which has caught the attention of the international community.
The reduction has meant that less than 5% of the inhabitants suffer from the problem, overcoming hunger as a structural issue in the country, according to the United Nations. But now Brazilian mission is bigger: helping other countries solve food insecurity, which affects 815 million people daily.
