State of Food Security in the Least Developed OIC Member Countries

This outlook report examines the food security situation in OIC member countries with a focus on issues and trends significant to the OIC Least Developed Countries (OIC-LDCs). Despite improvement, food security remained a persistent and elusive development challenge in the OIC group like elsewhere, notably as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent global crisis. The outlook for food security in 2022 is bleak with growing indications of rising food insecurity in many OIC countries, particularly among OIC-LDCs.
