ABSTRACT
The article presents a map of the countries with the most undernourished people. More than 850 million people around the world do not have enough to eat. Countries with unstable food supplies teeter on the brink of famine; natural or man-made disasters push them over the edge. Draught causes most of all food shortages. Human conflict driving farmers into refugee camps also adds to the problem. Bad governance is another reason for hunger.
