It's something many of us take for granted: food. But for many it's a daily struggle just to find enough calories to survive. The problem of food security is especially critical in war-torn countries like South Sudan.
With ever more people living in urban centers, food security — and quality — is becoming a pressing issue. In Germany, cities are increasingly taking the task of producing organic products to a hyperlocal level.
The UN has warned Yemen is at risk of famine, with 76 percent of the population in need of humanitarian aid. The saudi-led coalition has authorized a major port to operate, allowing supplies to reach those in need.
Half of all South Sudanese depend on food aid. This is not only because of droughts, but also bloody power struggles. The main victims in this cycle of violence and hunger are women and children.
Fighting in South Sudan has prevented food production, displaced communities and disrupted markets. According to a new UN report, the country's hunger crisis has worsened significantly over the past year.
