Dietary energy supply adequacy between 1990-2013: Sub-Saharan Africa up 11%, Developing Regions as a whole up 9%

January 14, 2015

[GIULIO's NOTE]: the following are taken from Table 2 on page 19 of SOFI13 titled Average dietary energy supply adequacy in the developing regions, 1990–92 to 2011–13
It shows that today, the world as a whole is at about 122% of dietary energy supply adequacy. Frankie noted that this should be in line with the 2831 kca/capita/day figure the FAO food balance sheets report.
Between the periods of 1990-92 and 2011-13 the following increases in the percentage of energy supply adequacy occurred:
Sub Saharan Africa: up 11%
World: up 7%
Developing Regions: up 9.2%
Developed Regions: up 3%
Asia: up 9.3%
