About the Global Hunger Index:

The Global Hunger Index (GHI) measures and tracks hunger at global, regional, and national levels. The index is published jointly by Welthungerhilfe (WHH) and Concern Worldwide. Based on current GHI projections, the index states that the world as a whole will not achieve a low level of hunger by 2030.

GHI scores are determined based on values of four indicators:

  • Undernourishment (share of the population with insufficient caloric intake),
  • Child wasting (share of children under age five who have low weight for their height, reflecting acute undernutrition),
  • Child stunting (share of children under age five who have low height for their age, reflecting chronic undernutrition), and
  • Child mortality (mortality rate of children under age five, partly reflecting the fatal mix of inadequate nutrition and unhealthy environments).
