Colombia enters the list of countries with acute food insecurity, according to the UN

The Colombian population faces levels of acute food insecurity for the first time, according to the annual report of the Global Network against Food Crises (GNAFC) in collaboration with the FAO and other UN agencies. This recently published report highlights that the percentage of the population facing this situation in Latin America and the Caribbean decreased during 2023, but Colombia has experienced a significant increase.

The document highlights that, despite being considered a middle or high-income country, Colombia faces high levels of poverty, income inequality and labor informality, especially in rural areas. According to the report, 1.3 million people, equivalent to 3% of the resident population in Colombia, faced serious levels of acute food insecurity in 2023, mainly due to low income and high vulnerability to external weather events.
