International hunger targets difficult to reach

- The number of hungry has declined, but remains unacceptably high

-Despite the decline, the ability to achieve international hunger targets such as MDG1 is still at risk

- Governments should encourage increased investment in agriculture, expand safety nets, and enhance income-generating activities for the rural and urban poor.
