On 16 December 2021, the Global Network's co-founders - EU, FAO and WFP - hold an event with key stakeholders to release the first edition of the 2021 Report on Financing Flows and Food Crises.

The event was an opportunity to present the key findings of report to the Global Network's partners, stimulating a discussion on the extent to which current financial flows are addressing the major food crises. Keynote speakers from Development Initiatives, DG-ECHO, g7+ Secretariat, OCHA, OECD, and WFP shared their perspectives and discussed the implications for the findings presented in the report.

The 2021 Report on Financing Flows and Food Crises features an analysis of the external financing to the food sectors to countries that experience food crises as identified by the 2021 Global Report on Food Crises

It presents a quantitative and neutral analysis of trends of the humanitarian and development assistance to food sectors globally, regionally and nationally between 2016 and 2020 alongside data on acute food insecurity.    

The report aims to contribute to ongoing efforts to meet the targets of SDG 2: Zero hunger by providing timely, transparent and actionable information to ensure that the right type of financing is available for the right actions, at the right time and in the right place. These factors are critical to meeting immediate needs while addressing the root causes of vulnerability – ultimately reducing hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. 

The report was developed by the Technical Support Unit (TSU) of the Global Network Against Food Crises in collaboration with Development Initiatives. The development of the report was made possible through the financial contribution of the European Union.
