Global Hunger Index 2007
The challenge of hunger
The 2007 Global Hunger Index illustrates that hunger has assumed an alarming scale in 36 countries: twenty-five of these countries are in Sub-Saharan Africa, nine in Asia, one in the Middle East and Latin America respectively. (2012)
One in seven people go to bed hungry every day. That’s 854 million people worldwide. Hunger is one of the world’s major problems and therefore one of its most important challenges. People who are forced to live from hand to mouth are denied a life of dignity.
