Resumo: The article addresses the issue of hunger in the world, one of the most perverse phenomena experienced by humanity in this new decade. Starting in 2014, an upward trend in food insecurity began to manifest itself, reaching serious levels in 2019-2020.With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, concern grew about the effects it could have on the food crisis worldwide and, especially, in Latin America and the Caribbean. The latter, because it is the region where commercial access to food is among the most expensive in the world. By the way, Latin America does not face a shortage of food, but on the contrary it has an abundance of them. These contradictions make it necessary to question whether market liberalization has been a solution to solve the problem of hunger at the world level. As well as reviewing the relevance of “official” food security policies and their driving institutions. One of the solutions is to achieve coordinated and permanent action by the States to guarantee the provision of food to the population and prevent the advance of hunger. Our conclusion is that the strengthening of regional integration projects based on food sovereignty is required.

A partir del año 2014 comenzó a manifestarse una tendencia ascendente en la inseguridad alimentaria hasta alcanzar niveles graves en 2019-2020. Con el inicio de la pandemia de COVID-19, se ha acentuado la preocupación respecto a los efectos que ésta podría provocar en la crisis alimentaria a nivel mundial y, especialmente, en América Latina y el Caribe, debido a que es el continente donde el acceso mercantil a la alimentación se sitúa entre las más costosas del mundo. Por cierto, la región no enfrenta escasez de alimentos, sino que al contrario hay abundancia de ellos. Estas contradicciones hacen necesario cuestionarse si la liberalización del mercado ha sido una solución para resolver el problema del hambre a nivel mundial. Así como también, revisar la pertinencia de las políticas "oficiales" de seguridad alimentaria y de sus instituciones impulsoras. Una de las vías de solución es lograr la acción coordinada y permanente de los Estados para garantizar la provisión de alimentos a la población y evitar el avance del hambre. Hoy más que nunca se requiere el fortalecimiento de proyectos de integración regional basados en la soberanía alimentaria.O artigo aborda o problema da fome no mundo, um dos fenômenos mais aberrantes com que a humanidade começou a nova década. A partir de 2014, começou a se manifestar uma tendência crescente na insegurança alimentar, alcançando graves níveis em 2019-2020. Com o início da pandemia de COVID-19, se acentuou a preocupação a respeito dos efeitos que esta poderia provocar na crise alimentícia a nível mundial e especialmente na América Latina e no Caribe, onde o acesso mercantil à alimentação é um dos mais caros do mundo. No entanto, a região não enfrenta escassez de alimentos, pelo contrário, possui uma grande abundância. Considerando estas contradições, faz-se necessário questionar se a liberação do mercado tem sido uma solução para resolver o problema da fome a nível mundial. Assim como revisar a pertinência das políticas "oficiais" de segurança alimentar e de suas instituições impulsionadoras. Uma das soluções seria obter a ação coordenada e permanente dos Estados a fim de garantir o fornecimento de alimentos à população e evitar o avanço da fome. Hoje, mais do que nunca, é preciso o fortalecimento de projetos de integração regional baseados na soberania alimentar.Editora da PUCRS - ediPUCRS2020-12-22info:eu-repo/semantics/articleinfo:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersionapplication/pdfhttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/fass/article/view/3963610.15448/1677-9509.2020.2.39636Textos & Contextos (Porto Alegre); Vol. 19 No. 2 (2020); e39636Textos & Contextos (Porto Alegre); v. 19 n. 2 (2020); e396361677-950910.15448/1677-9509.2020.2reponame:Textos & contextos (Porto Alegre)instname:Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUC RS)instacron:PUC_RSenghttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/fass/article/view/39636/26511http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccessSilva Flores , Consuelo2020-12-23T13:29:25Zoai:ojs.revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br:article/39636Revistahttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/fassPUBhttps://revistaseletronicas.pucrs.br/ojs/index.php/fass/oaitextos@pucrs.br1677-95091677-9509opendoar:2020-12-23T13:29:25Textos & contextos (Porto Alegre) - Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUC RS)false
