2016 Global Food Policy Report reviews major trends, events, and changes affecting food security and nutrition in 2015 and beyond. The year 2015 was a watershed moment for the international development community. The endpoint of the Millennium Development Goals highlighted the striking advances made since 1990: extreme poverty, child mortality, and hunger all fell by around half. However, enormous challenges remain.
