Washington, 2 Jul 2015. The United States Department of Agriculture released a report on the state of food security in 76 countries “International Food, Security Assessment 2015-2025”. The publication offers a status quo assessment and outlook probabilities on food security in low- and middle-income countries that have experienced food crises and insecurity in the past. The report’s projections are based on measures of food production and import capacity. The domestic food production is the key factor that determines food security, particularly in the developing countries in Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. In the countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and North Africa the share of imported food is significantly larger, which makes this the most influential factor.
