Global hunger Index 2012

Global hunger Index 2012

According to this global hunger Index 2012 prepared by IFPRI, India lags behind in improving its GHI score despite strong economic growth. It has analyzed the level of hunger in 120 countries and provides recommendations on how to use land, water and energy for sustainable food security.

The 2012 GHI report focuses particularly on the issue of how to ensure sustainable food security under conditions of water, land, and energy stress. Demographic changes, rising incomes and associated consumption patterns, and climate change, alongside persistent poverty and inadequate policies and institutions, are all placing serious pressure on natural resources. In this report, IFPRI describes the evidence on land, water, and energy scarcity in developing countries and offers two visions of a future global food system—an unsustainable scenario in which current trends in resource use continue, and a sustainable scenario in which access to food, modern energy, and clean water improves significantly and ecosystem degradation is halted or reversed.
