Bloomberg News headline The World is being hit by the worst gas shortage in a generation, but there are still more than 2 billion people who don’t have enough to eat and many others who can’t afford to leave their homes.
The World Food Programme reports that about 7.2 billion people still don’t know how much food they can actually eat, and that most of them can’t even afford to buy food for themselves.
There are about 1.5 billion people living in extreme poverty, with an average income of $4.55 per day.
About a quarter of the world’s population lives in sub-Saharan Africa, where poverty is estimated to be 20 percent higher than in the United States.
“We are in a very dangerous situation,” said Kaleem Shah, the executive director of the World Food Program.
“The global supply of food is still in flux.
The situation is critical.”
Shah said that if the crisis worsens, the world will be forced to import food from faraway places.
The problem of food scarcity is especially acute in Africa, with food prices having already reached record highs.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, in 2013, the World Health Organization reported that the world was facing a humanitarian crisis.
In South Sudan, the country in which Sudan is based, hunger is rising, with the country’s population expected to reach a record high of 1.8 million by the end of next year.
The World Health Organisation’s food crisis report says that hunger has risen dramatically over the past few years due to a series of food security crises, including drought, climate change, and increased consumption of imported food.
According to the report, the number of people in famine is expected to increase in Africa from 7.7 million in 2014 to 16.5 million in 2030, while the number in extreme hunger is expected for Africa to reach 30.5% of the population.
For now, there are hopes that the global crisis will subside in the coming years.
But if there is a worsening of the crisis, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) has warned that food insecurity will continue to worsen, and could reach crisis proportions in many countries.
In a recent report, FAO food security expert Peter Hajek said that as long as the world is relying on imports for food, the current shortage could be permanent.
Hajek warned that if there are no major changes to agricultural practices in the near future, food shortages could worsen in the future.
Food insecurity is already happening, Hajek added, because of a lack of food in some regions of the globe.
He noted that in Africa and South America, where there are large numbers of people who live in extreme food poverty, the food crisis is worsening, with millions of people relying on imported food to get by.
It is a situation that many experts fear will get worse.
