Global food security index 2012: an assessment of food affordability, availability and quality

India has been ranked 66 in this 2012 Global Food Security Index created by Economist Intelligence Unit. It looks beyond hunger to examine the underlying factors and key risks affecting food security in a structured, rigorous framework.

Food systems today are under severe and increasing strains from population pressures, high input prices, changing consumer patterns and dramatic weather and price shocks. In this context, the EIU has created the Global Food Security Index, which looks beyond hunger to examine the underlying factors and key risks affecting food security in a structured, rigorous framework. The index is a dynamic benchmarking model that uses quantitative and qualitative indicators to provide a standard against which countries can be measured and reveal individual country strengths and weaknesses.
