COOPI’s worldwide operations increased once again in 2017. It means also that the number of humanitarian crises we have tried to respond to as effectively as ever has increased. We have decided not to limit ourselves to intervening when there is an emergency, only to then move on elsewhere; instead, we remain alongside the communities hit by those emergencies in the medium-to-long-term, so as to help them overcome their critical issues and launch a reconstruction process.

WHY POSITIVE PEACE IS TRANSFORMATIONAL
América Latina y el Caribe se aleja del cumplimiento del Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 2: Hambre cero. Su número de personas subalimentadas aumentó por tercer año consecutivo: en 2017 alcanzó 39,3 millones, en gran medida debido a Sudamérica.
La malnutrición en la Región toma muchas formas: uno de cada diez niños y niñas menores de cinco años presenta retraso en el crecimiento; uno de cada cuatro adultos es obeso; una de cada cinco mujeres en edad fértil padece de anemia.
Obesity grows by 3.6 million people every year in the region, while hunger has increased in three countries since 2014, according to a new report from FAO, PAHO, UNICEF and WFP.
SANTIAGO DE CHILE / PANAMA CITY - Hunger, malnutrition, lack of micronutrients, overweight and obesity have greater impact on people with lower income, women, indigenous people, Afro-descendants and rural families in Latin America and the Caribbean, according to a new UN report.
In the course of this ground-breaking research, thousands of girls and young women have shared their stories of harassment and violence for the first time, providing a never-before seen glimpse of what they experience in their cities and the impact this has on their lives.
Food fortification – adding vitamins and minerals to commonly eaten foods - has proven to be an effective strategy in reducing micronutrient deficiencies. Countries in North America and Europe have been fortifying foods since the 1920s, which led to the virtual eradication of nutrition-related diseases like goiter, rickets, beriberi and pellagra. But today 2 billion people across the world still suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, as nutritious foods are still not accessible to all.
At the end of his mission to assess the regional impact of Venezuelans leaving their country, Filippo Grandi commits to more cooperation with host governments.

GENEVA, Oct 15 2018 (IPS) - How much would you expect to pay for the most basic plate of food? The kind of thing you might whip up at home – nothing fancy, just enough to fill you up and meet a third of today’s calorie needs. A soup, maybe, or a simple stew – some beans or lentils, a handful of rice, bread, or corn?
