In 2015, the world’s countries committed to achieving zero hunger by 2030. But we will not be on track to meet that goal – if combating hunger isn’t stepped up soon. And – conflict remains a major factor for hunger and displacement. These are two major conclusions to be drawn from this year’s Global Hunger Index, which Welthungerhilfe presented in Berlin, Germany, in mid-October.

“In many countries and in terms of the global average, hunger and malnutrition have declined since 2000, indicating real improvements in the lives of millions of men, women and children.” So much for the good news in this year’s Global Hunger Index (GHI), which the relief organisations Welthungerhilfe and Concern Worldwide have now been presenting for 13 years to mark World Food Day, the 16th October. The flipside of the coin is that for the last two years, developments have remained stagnant – or have even reversed.
