2016 Global Hunger Index: Getting to Zero Hunger
|Post date||Wednesday, 12 October, 2016 - 12:17|
The 2016 Global Hunger Index demonstrates that real progress has been made in reducing hunger since the UN Millennium Development Goals were announced, but that the current pace of reducing hunger will not be fast enough to reach the Sustainable Development Goal of zero hunger by 2030.
Despite a 29% reduction in GHI scores in the developing world since 2000, seven countries still face alarming levels of hunger and a further 43 countries have serious hunger levels.
This year's report highlights the challenges on the path to zero hunger, and outlines how to achieve that goal with policy recommendations and a chapter by Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General David Nabarro. Read the full report or synopsis, or see the interactive map below for more.
