Latin America and the Caribbean was the first region to commit to the complete eradication of hunger through the 2025 Hunger-Free Latin America and the Caribbean Initiative. This renewed political commitment is based on the full conviction that eradicating hunger in the Region is an achievable target.


Latin America and the Caribbean is at the forefront of the global fight against hunger. It is the Region that has made the most progress in reducing the percentage and total number of people suffering from hunger in the past 20 years.


Thanks to successful public policies implemented by Governments, coupled with economic growth, hunger fell from 14.7% in 1990-93 to 7.9% in 2010-2013. Child malnutrition was also halved in the same period, while the total number of undernourished people decreased from 59 million in 1990 to 47 million in 2013.


The Region was the first to commit to the complete eradication of hunger through the 2025 Hunger-Free Latin America and the Caribbean Initiative (HFLACI). This renewed political commitment is based on the full conviction that eradicating hunger in the Region is an achievable target.


Eight Member Nations have already fully eradicated hunger, 15 have achieved the first Millennium Development Goal of reducing by half the proportion of people suffering from hunger, and 11 have also achieved the World Food Summit target of reducing the proportion as well as the total number of undernourished people.


Food security policies and programmes, as well as the Region's role as one the world's main food producers, place Latin America and the Caribbean at the forefront of the global fight against hunger. Many of its flagship initiatives are being adapted to other world Regions in strengthening global food security.


The FAO Regional Office supports Member Nations by monitoring food security levels; assisting in the design and implementation of hunger-eradication strategies, laws and programmes; and promoting family farming, agricultural and rural development and climate-change adaptation policies.


FAO places a special emphasis on vulnerable communities - with a particular focus on women, indigenous and native peoples - and works closely with Member Nation Governments, civil society and international cooperation stakeholders to empower social actors and local communities in exercising a leading role in their own development.

In May 2012, the Committee on World Food Security approved the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (the “Guidelines”). The Guidelines have been described as a catalysing instrument that improves the conditions of land and natural resources, in the agricultural, fishery and forestry sectors. They address problems related to poor governance of land tenure and the growing pressure exerted on natural resources, thereby helping countries to achieve food security for all.

Históricamente América Central es una región con importantes niveles de inequidad en la distribución y uso de los recursos naturales. Estos niveles de inequidades, partes de procesos económico socios y políticos (concentración de las cadenas de valores, agricultura de escala industrial apoyada por políticas publicas hacia los mercados de exportación), han generado algunas problemáticas relacionadas a la gobernanza de los recursos y su tenencia, tanto para la población como para los ecosistemas que sustentan en gran medida el crecimiento económico de los países de la región.
