[size=52]Confusion over a global report that placed Iraq among the 7 most hungry countries in the world[/size]

[size=45]International classifications conflict with government figures about Iraq regarding whether it is a hungry country or in need of food aid. After a round of reports, including a report by the World Food Organization (FAO), issued several months ago, Iraq was classified among 10 Arab countries in need of foreign aid for food due to conflicts and climate.[/size]
[size=45]And recently, the hunger map for 2021 developed by the World Food Program was issued, which determined the prevalence of undernourishment among the population of each country in 2018-2020, as Iraq came in the purple region, which indicates a rate of hunger among the population of more than 35%.[/size]
[size=45]While this report is consistent with the FAO report a few months ago, that Iraq is among 10 Arab countries that need external food assistance, including Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Sudan, Libya, Djibouti, Eritrea, Mauritania and Somalia, the Iraqi Ministry of Planning seemed not convinced by this last classification, which made Iraq Among the most hungry countries in the world at 35%.[/size]
[size=45]The ministry said in a statement that "during the past two days, the media and social media circulated a report attributed to the World Food Program at the United Nations. The report talks about that Iraq is one of the seven most hungry countries in the world, and that a third of the Iraqi people sleep hungry, putting Iraq In addition to very poor countries such as Somalia, Madagascar, Congo and others.[/size]
[size=45]She added, "With regard to this report, we would like to clarify the following facts:[/size]
[size=45]1- Iraq did not face a food crisis that could cause a threat of hunger to the vulnerable groups in society, even during the height of the spread of the Corona pandemic, in which many countries witnessed food crises, but Iraq did not face such a crisis, due to government measures that contributed to providing Food, whether locally produced or imported, in addition to social solidarity.[/size]
[size=45]2- The government has taken a number of measures, including supporting the social protection network, securing ration card materials, and distributing an emergency financial grant to those affected by the pandemic, with the aim of helping them face emergency conditions.[/size]
[size=45]3- Talking about a third of Iraqis being hungry is contrary to reality, because the rate of food fragility in Iraq is less than 2% of the total population, and this percentage increased after the waves of displacement in 2014.[/size]
[size=45]4- The poverty rate rose in 2020 to 31%, and this does not mean that this percentage represents the hungry population at all, but this falls within the framework of what is known as “multi-dimensional poverty”, which includes health, education, housing, and income, and the percentage increased as a result of the Corona pandemic and its economic repercussions.[/size]
[size=45]5- The total percentage of families that receive the ration is 95%.[/size]
[size=45]6- The indicators that we adopt are extracted from the statistical surveys carried out by the Central Statistical Organization in accordance with the global standards approved by the United Nations.[/size]
[size=45]7- Accordingly, the indicators referred to in the report attributed to the World Food Program are unrealistic and are not based on the indicators approved by the Ministry of Planning. As it is not possible in any way to compare the food and living situation of the Iraqi people with countries that are already suffering from severe famine,[/size]
[size=45]She concluded, "Iraq is not hungry."[/size]
