Global Hunger

  • 2015 Global Hunger Index shows that though progress has been made since the turn of century  but the level of hunger in the world still remains unacceptably high.
  • Major reason is Spread of Armed conflicts: Many countries affected by violent conflicts including Syria, South Sudan, Somalia.
  • 795 mn people in world still go hungry
  • 1 in 9 people remain chronically undernourished
  • 3.1 mn children die of malnutrition each year
Conflict is development in reverse. Without peace, ending poverty and hunger by 2030 will never be achieved. The time has come to make conflict prevention and resolution a far higher priority.
72 out of 129 countries have achieved MDG target of halving the prevalence of undernourished population.
Extreme poverty in developing regions have come down from 43% in 1990 to 17% in 2015. But the progress has been uneven across the globe.
