The Global Hunger Index (GHI) is a tool used to measure and track hunger and undernutrition at a global, regional, and national level. It provides valuable insights into the state of hunger and food security in different parts of the world. The GHI is published annually and is a collaborative effort by several organizations, including the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Concern Worldwide, and Welthungerhilfe.

The Global Hunger Index takes into account several key indicators to assess the hunger situation in a given country or region. These indicators include:

Undernourishment: This indicator measures the proportion of the population whose caloric intake is insufficient to meet their dietary energy requirements.

Child Stunting: Stunting is a measure of chronic undernutrition in children, typically defined as a low height for age. It reflects long-term nutritional inadequacy.

Child Wasting: Wasting is a measure of acute undernutrition in children, typically defined as a low weight for height. It reflects short-term nutritional inadequacy.

Child Mortality: Child mortality rates, particularly those related to undernutrition, are considered an important aspect of the GHI.

The GHI combines these indicators to provide an overall score for a country or region, with higher scores indicating a worse hunger situation. The index is typically reported on a scale from 0 to 100, with lower scores indicating better food security and lower levels of hunger.

The Global Hunger Index is a valuable tool for policymakers, researchers, and organizations working to address hunger and food insecurity worldwide. It helps identify regions and countries where hunger is most prevalent and where interventions are needed to improve food security and nutrition. It can also track progress over time and highlight areas where improvements have been made.
