Afghan refugees who fled their homeland due to war and famine, are on their way to collect clean water in slums of Lahore, Pakistan, Wednesday, June 19, 2019.

The world's hungry rose to more 820 million people last year, according to a United Nations report that highlights issues of improper nutrition and economic inequality.

Last year was the third consecutive year hunger increased, following a decline over several decades. War, climate change and troubled economies were among the key reasons behind the gain, according to the report Tuesday from the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Program, the World Health Organization and other agencies.
