Global Hunger Index ( More Mouths than Feed Bowls ) Presented By Ramya Ranjan Sahu Regd. No.:-0906107041 C.I.M.E., BBSR

INTRODUCTION:- : 

INTRODUCTION:- The Global Hunger Index (GHI) is a multidimensional statistical tool used to describe the state of countries hunger situation. The GHI measures progress and failures in the global fight against hunger. The GHI is updated once a year. The Index was adopted and further developed by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and was first published in 2006 with the Welthungerhilfe, a German non-profit organisation (NGO).

Slide 3: 

OBJECTIVES:- It has following 3 objectives: Design a GHI as a tool for international monitoring & advocacy, and demonstrate its added value. Rank countries according to the GHI & illustrate trends. Interpret the GHI findings & analyze determinants of hunger.

CONCEPT & CALULATION:- : 

CONCEPT & CALULATION:- Hunger has many faces: increased susceptibility to disease, shortfalls in nutritional status, loss of energy, disability, death due to starvation, or infectious diseases whose lethal course is the result of weakened general health. The GHI is designed to capture several dimensions of hunger in one value, thus giving an overview of the complex problem.

Slide 5: 

Calculation The Global Hunger Index is calculated as follows: PUN + CUW+ CM GHI= 3 PUN: proportion of the population that is undernourished (in %) CUW: prevalence of underweight children under five (in %) CM: proportion of children dying before the age of five (in %)

INDEX RANK RESULT 0 NO HUNGER <= 4.9 LOW HUNGER 5<=GHI<=9.9 MODERATE HUNGER 10<=GHI<=19.9 SERIOUS HUNGER 20<=GHI<=29.9 ALARAMING >=30 EXTREMELY ALARAMING 100 ALL HUNGER

Slide 7: 

GHI RESULT 2009:- The 2009 GHI themed “The Challenge of Hunger: Focus on Financial Crisis & Gender inequality” prepared by IFPRI was released in October 2009. The GHI 2009 shows that world wide progress in reducing hunger remains slow. The 2009 GHI has fallen by only one quarter from the 1990 GHI.
