2016 Global Hunger Index: Getting to Zero Hunger

The 2016 Global Hunger Index presents a multidimensional measure of national, regional, and global hunger, focusing on how the world can get to Zero Hunger by 2030. The developing world has made substantial progress in reducing hunger since 2000, yet this progress has been uneven, and great disparities in hunger continue to exist at the regional, national, and subnational levels. To reflect the multidimensional nature of hunger, the Index has updated its indicators of malnutrition.
