The Annual Report reflects on WFP’s support to a record 160 million people in 2022 amidst a global food crisis that brought partnership to the fore

As a global food crisis tightened its grip in 2022, WFP and partners strengthened alliances to meet colossal challenges fuelled by conflict, the climate emergency and economic aftershocks of COVID-19. The war in Ukraine compounded rocketing inflation, as a record 349 million people experienced acute hunger and 772,000 teetered on the edge of famine. Amidst soaring needs and diminishing resources, WFP's life-saving work came to the fore, while we maintained a laser focus on development and building resilience to future crises.
