A critical look into the 2018 SOFIN

It is time for a human rights-based State of Food Insecurity and Nutrition in the World.

Despite the revised methodology of the State of Food Insecurity and Nutrition in the World (SOFIN) implemented in 2017, and the inclusion of new “qualitative” indicators through the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES)- the SOFIN report continues to largely reduce issues of hunger and malnutrition to nutrient deficiencies and neglects the quality of food (including cultural adequacy), the relation to needs based on livelihoods and labor, or periodic food insecurity caused.
