By 2030, according to the Center for Social and Economic Studies CASE Ukraine, the number of people suffering from chronic hunger may increase worldwide. The reason for this is Russia's war against Ukraine. According to a Gallup survey published on the website, this problem is even more pressing than before the pandemic.

The study indicates that in 2022, the level of hunger in the world was 9.2% (in Africa - 19.7%), practically unchanged from the 2021 figures. Last year, between 691 and 783 million people suffered from hunger, which is 122 million more than in 2019 before the pandemic.

Experts emphasize that with the current events unfolding, by 2030, almost 600 million people may still suffer from chronic hunger. This is 119 million more than if there had been no pandemic or conflict in Ukraine, and 23 million more than without war altogether.

At the same time, food insecurity continues to affect more women than men.
