The GHI series of reports tracks the state of hunger – worldwide and country by country – and spotlights those regions and countries where action to address hunger is most urgently needed. This year's report shows that the world has made progress in reducing hunger since 2000, but that this progress has been uneven, with levels of hunger still serious or alarming in 51 countries and extremely alarming in one country.
This year's report shines a light on the inequalities underlying hunger – including geographic, income, and gender inequality – and the inequalities of social, political, and economic power in which they are rooted.
This year's case studies highlight the work of Concern Worldwide and Welthungerhilfe as part of efforts towards reducing the inequalities of hunger in two different countries: Sierra Leone and Pakistan. They focus on the complex challenges faced and the progress made so far, and illustrate how lessons are being learned along the journey.
