Even before the impact of COVID-19, global progress on reducing hunger was far too slow to reach the SDG 2030 targets. The 2020 GHI shows that based on their recent trajectories, 37 countries appear unlikely to achieve even low hunger status by 2030. In multiple countries, hunger is now at even higher rates than it was in 2012, driven by conflict, poverty, inequality, poor health, and climate change. In this context, the Index carries an essay on how to make food systems more resilient to shocks, protect the most vulnerable, and transform the post–COVID-19 world of food and nutrition. It suggests reshaping food systems to align them with comprehensive health and social protection approaches in a way that will eliminate hunger sustainably. The resource can be useful for policy makers addressing malnutrition at the country level. Click here to access the resource.
