UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United Nations says that about one out of eight of the world's people suffered chronic hunger over the last two years.
Three U.N. food agencies say in a new report released Tuesday that about 842 million people did not get enough food in the 2011 to 2013 period.
That is a slight improvement from the last study done in 2010-2012 when 868 million people were found to be hungry.
The U.N. World Food Program, the Food and Agricultural Organization and the international Fund for Agricultural Development say that most hunger was in poorer nations. But 15.7 million chronically hungry people live in developed nations.
Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest prevalence of undernourishment, with one in four people estimated to be hungry.
