Global Hunger Index 2009
The link between gender inequality and hunger is identified in the Global Hunger Index Report 2009.
The Global Hunger Index report ranks countries on three leading indicators: prevalence of child malnutrition; rates of child mortality; and the proportion of people who are calorie de
ficient – combining them into one score. The higher the score, the more desperate the predicament of those affected.
This is a joint research report by Concern Worldwide, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and German NGO Welthungerhilfe.
