MEDIA BRIEF: WFP's HUNGER MAP AND HUNGER HOT SPOTS 2001
As the UN's frontline agency in the global fight against hunger, WFP has long produced vulnerability assessment maps for individual countries where it runs operations.
The WFP Hunger Map gives the macro view of world hunger, helping to locate the estimated 830 million undernourished people who live across the globe.
NEW YORK - Today, Catherine Bertini, the head of the United Nations World Food Programme, presented a World Hunger Map, which illustrates the extent of global hunger, now estimated as affecting 830 million people around the world. She used the map to show that millions went hungry not just because of conflict or natural disaster but also because of the effects of being poor.

Rome, 15 November, 2000 -- Severe
drought, typhoons, poor infrastructure and economic problems mean that
the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK/North Korea) is facing
its seventh consecutive year of food shortages,
United Nations agencies warned today.
Beijing (dpa) - Humanitarian aid from the world community over the past five years has saved ''hundreds of thousands of lives'' in North Korea, but the famine-hit country is facing another harsh winter, Duncan MacLaren, the secretary general of the Catholic aid organization Caritas Internationalis, said on Tuesday.
Drought and a typhoon this summer has dashed earlier hopes for a better harvest, MacLaren said in Beijing following a one-week trip to North Korea.
