In 2011 alone, 206 million people were affected by droughts, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters.
Today, 870 million people are chronically undernourished—nearly three times the population of the U.S.
From 1980 to 2010, the number of recorded disasters rose by 200 percent.
This past year alone, the U.S. responded to 67 disasters—a quarter of which involved multiple crises at once.
