PUBLICATION: IFPRI 2009 Global Hunger Index
IFPRI has just released its 2009 Global Hunger Index.
The Global Hunger Index (GHI) shows that worldwide progress in reducing hunger remains slow. The 2009 global GHI has fallen by only one quarter from the 1990 GHI. Southeast Asia, the Near East and North Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean have reduced hunger significantly since 1990, but the GHI remains distressingly high in South Asia, which has made progress since 1990, and in Sub-Saharan Africa, where progress has been marginal.
The tool below allows you to compare the 2009 GHI value from country to country. The complete report is available for download here.
