Food security

Demographic trends, climate disruption, and natural disasters, as well as conflicts and the COVID-19 pandemic, have led to a growing number of people suffering from hunger and starvation worldwide. In 2018, 9.2% of the world population experienced severe food insecurity. ADE contributes to the UN zero hunger goal (SDG 2) by closely collaborating with the World Food Programme on country and strategic evaluations. ADE also conducts impact evaluations of programmes related to food security issues, with solid experience in measurement of food security and resilience indicators using first-hand and secondary data sources.
