Report: Hunger rising with global temperatures, UN report says

This article discusses a United Nations’ report that shows that hunger is rising with global temperatures.

Climate change is having a negative effect on global agriculture and is driving up the number of hungry people around the world, according to the United Nations’ 2018 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report, released Tuesday.

It found that 821 million people — one in every nine — were malnourished in 2017, up from 815 million in 2016, putting at risk the UN’s goal of eradicating hunger in the world by 2030.
