Global hunger index

“The number of hungry people in the world ‘remains unacceptably high’ with millions still experiencing chronic hunger and many places suffering from acute food crises and even famine, according to the latest Global Hunger Index (GHI).

“The 2017 GHI, which is jointly published on Thursday by Concern Worldwide, the International Food Policy Research Institute and the German aid agency Welthungerhilfe, confirms overall progress across the planet – hunger levels have fallen by 27 per cent since 2000 – but says this is masking places where there are ‘alarming levels of hunger’.”
