This report, published by the Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS) of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, reviews developments about the food situation in developing countries, particularly Low-Income Food-Deficit Countries (LIFDCs). It is published four times a year, with the earliest available on the website dating back to 2006.

Each report contains a review by geographic region, with a section dedicated specifically to LIFDCs and a list of countries requiring external assistance for food. It also contains a global overview of cereal supply and demand, major issues that have arisen since the previous report, a thorough report on LIFDCs and a statistical index that includes cereal supply and demand indicators, as well as international prices of wheat and grain.

The report is available in English, French, Spanish and Chinese.
