🌏 US Hosted 15% of Global International Students in 2022

Other nations besides those listed hosted the remaining 1.7M international students

International students globally have quadrupled since 2000, reaching 6.4 million learners in 2022. The US was the top host destination in 2022, attracting nearly 950K international students, according to UNSECO data. The United Kingdom, Canada, France, and Australia were also among the top destinations, hosting a combined 31% of all international students. This growth reflects the increasing globalization in education and the growing demand for cross-cultural learning experiences.

Global CO₂ emissions related to energy have more than doubled since 1975. Emissions have risen from nearly 16B tons in 1975 to approximately 36B tons in 2023. This increase shows the growing energy consumption and the corresponding rise in carbon emissions over the past decades, indicating the importance of the global transition to clean energy.

🍽️ Central and Eastern Africa Among Africa's Most Undernourished Regions

The prevalence of undernourishment (PoU) estimates the proportion of the population that lacks sufficient dietary energy for a healthy, active life. Central and Eastern Africa had the highest levels of undernourishment with over 28% of the population affected. Africa as a whole experienced a 19.7% undernourishment rate. Western Africa saw a 14.6% rate, while Southern Africa had 11.1%. Northern Africa had the lowest prevalence at 7.5%.
