Seven million Nigerians to suffer acute hunger in three months

Nigeria is set to experience a lean food supply crisis from this month to August as more than seven million people would, as predicted, suffer acute hunger within the period.

The 2020 Global Report on Food Crises by the Global Network Against Food Crisis (GNAFC) and the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) made the revelation in a recently released report.
Similarly, the World Food Programme disclosed that people with insufficient food consumption globally are 0.99 billion currently.
As the world population aggressively moves towards 8 billion (7,789,727,000 around noon on June 7, 2020), more than 10 per cent of the people are suffering from food insufficiency.
And, experts have expressed worry that conflicts and climate change may aggravate the tragedy if actions are not urgently taken.
The COVID-19 pandemic and effects of climate change combined, food production, distribution and disposable incomes of the poor around the world have been jeopardised, they said.
The WFP report also disclosed that 15 countries are currently with “very high levels of hunger,” indicating that world leaders should be proactive, as conflicts and economic crises could escalate the situation.
The GNAFC and FSIN said in Nigeria, “the number of acutely food-insecure people during the June–August 2020 lean season is forecast at 7.1 million, over 40 per cent up from the same period last year.”
The situation poses threats to the actualisation of the global Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 2.1 of “ending hunger and ensuring access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round.”
The Guardian obtained the data through HungerMapLIVE, which the WFP has developed to track and predict key aspects of food insecurity every day. Such key indicators that feed into analyses are the number of people with insufficient food consumption and those employing crisis-level or above coping strategies, among others.
The deteriorating situations expected in Nigeria are the result of poor child-feeding practices coupled with seasonal food shortages and increased morbidity in the insurgency-affected states.
