Hunger Map

From Africa and Asia to Latin America and the Near East, there are 842 million people in the world who do not get enough food to lead a normal, active life.

Our downloadable Hunger Map provides invaluable information that helps school teachers and children learn more about the biggest single risk to global health. It's a high-resolution PDF that can be printed out for display purposes.

In Sub-Sahara Africa, only South Africa and Ghana can fully feed their people.
Ethiopia, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambic are still the worst performers regarding the Hunger crisis, according this 2013 map.

But in overall, India is more distressing : one-third of the world’s malnourished children live in India. According to UNICEF, 47% of Indian children are underweight and 46% of those under three years old are too small for their age. Indeed, almost half of all childhood deaths can be attributed to malnutrition.

According to current estimates, India’s total population will reach 1.45 billion by 2028, similar to China’s, and 1.7 billion by 2050, equivalent to nearly the combined population of China and the United States today. Given that India is already struggling to feed its population, its current food crisis could worsen significantly in the coming decades.

According to the 2013 Global Hunger Index (GHI), India ranks 63rd, out of the 78 hungriest countries, significantly worse than neighboring Sri Lanka (43rd), Nepal (49th), Pakistan (57th), and Bangladesh (58th)

Africa made significant progress, the Millennium Development Goal is on track to achieve its success for many sub-Saharan african countries. look at the map below :

The two reports are contradictory. On one hand, they are saying undernourishment levels are above 35% and on the other, they are saying Ethiopia is in on track to meet the MDG goals by 2015.
its not a contradiction. I think the goal was to reduce hunger levels by half (or something like that) from 1991 levels. So a country with high hunger levels may have reached its goal whereas a nation with lower levels may have not.

Ethi is really investing in this sector.

Zambia is a disgrace, a potential agriculture powerhouse. Some of the most fertile land in Africa and a water surplus.

are you saying hunger in Ethiopia in 1991 was >70%? I don't think it was ever that bad, even in 1984.
