A new report from the United Nations says one [in / of] eight people around the world does not have [plenty / enough] food. The U.N. reports that 842 million people suffer [for / from] very serious hunger. This is about 12 per cent of the world population. This percentage has [gone / been] down. It was 17 per cent in 1992. The U.N. says many countries [yet / still] cannot find ways to feed their people. Africa is the [region / regional] with the highest number of undernourished people. The U.N. says [that / this] one in five Africans is undernourished. In [over / more] 19 African nations, more than a quarter of the population [comes / goes] hungry. The U.N. said 98 per cent of the world's hungry people live in [developing / development] countries.

The World Food Programme (WFP) [explained / explanation] that undernourishment is "not [having / has] enough food for an active and [health / healthy] life" and an inability to "meet dietary energy [requires / requirements] ". The WFP said hunger is now the largest [risky / risk] to people's health around the world. It is a more [series / serious] problem than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. One of the biggest reasons for people [been / being] hungry is war. The U.N. said developing countries that have experienced war in the [passed / past] 20 years have bigger problems feeding their people. Scientists say this [simulation / situation] could get worse because of climate change.
