The report, published by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, acknowledges that the issues of global food security, hunger, and malnutrition are complex. It examines the interrelatedness of food security and globalization processes, ranging from international trade to climate change and from water scarcity to scientific innovation.
