Global Hunger Index

Global Hunger Index (Concern Worldwide) – Based on publicly available data from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Health Organisation (WHO), the World Bank and other multilateral organisations, the index captures the level of hunger across countries using four indicators: undernourishment, child wasting, child stunting, and child mortality. The GHI methodology understands hunger as a combination of child undernourishment, insufficient calorie intake, and child mortality.

The index ranks countries on a 100-point scale that indicates the severity of hunger by classifying countries as having low hunger (score <10), moderate hunger (10-19.9), serious hunger (20-34.9), alarming hunger (35-49.9), and extremely alarming hunger (>50).
