This entry focuses on the history of famine and famine mortality over time. Our data include information only up to More information on these crises can be found at FEWS. A famine is an acute episode of extreme hunger that results in excess mortality due to starvation or hunger-induced diseases. It is this crisis characteristic that distinguishes it from persistent malnutrition, which we discuss in another entry on this website.
But despite these ambiguities, it is nonetheless very clear that in recent decades the presence of major life-taking famines has diminished significantly and abruptly as compared to earlier eras. For this entry we have assembled a new global dataset on famines from the s until We estimate that in total Million people died in famines over this period.
Paradoxically, over the course of the 20 th century famine was virtually eradicated from most of the world, whilst over the same period there occurred some of the worst famines in recorded history. This is because many of the major famines of the 20 th century were the outcome of wars or totalitarian regimes. Emergency food aid provided by relief agencies continues to play a crucial role in preventing loss of life, and the international relief community has recently developed much better monitoring systems, such as the Famine Early Warning System , that has allowed for greater preparation and more timely interventions.
Where poor harvests are the main cause of famine, as in Niger in , relief provision tends to prevent marked increases in mortality. Thus, overall, we can see in the rapid decline of famine mortality one of the great accomplishments of our era, representing technological progress, economic development and the spread of stable democracies.
