On September 15, 2017, the five United Nations agencies – Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), UN World Food Program (WFP), United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization (WHO) – will release the first-ever consolidated UN report on progress towards eradicating hunger and malnutrition by 2030.
 
This new edition of The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World will give updated estimates of the number and proportion of hungry people on the planet and include data for the global, regional, and national levels.
 
It will offer a significant update on the shifting global milieu that is today affecting people's food security and nutrition, in all corners of the globe.

This is the first time that UNICEF and WHO join FAO, IFAD and WFP in preparing the annual State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report. This change reflects the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) broader view on hunger and all forms of malnutrition. The report includes enhanced metrics for quantifying and assessing hunger, including two indicators on food insecurity and six indicators on nutrition.
