This report on food crises gives estimates of the level of severe hunger faced by various countries in the world. Last year, conflict and extreme climate events have been the main drivers of food shocks. The acute food shortages in many countries, are directly tied to the lack of harvests which is influenced by lack of rain in some countries while others have been overrun by floods, and hurricanes in others. The short term estimate for 2018 suggests that conflict and enduring weather conditions will continue to contribute to the acute food crises in many regions.
