According to today’s Vital Sign Online release, “Global Chronic Hunger Rises Above 1 Billion,” in 2009, “an estimated 1.02 billion people were classified as undernourished, 12 percent more than in 2008. This means nearly one in six people on Earth suffers from undernourishment.”  Going beyond an outline of the overwhelming problem of growing global hunger, today’s Vital Signs highlights some of the environmentally sustainable agriculture innovations being implemented on the ground to alleviate poverty and hunger that will be featured in next year’s State of the World 2011: Innovations that Nourish the Planet.
