India ranks 111 out of 125 countries in Global Hunger Index 2023
  • The GHI scores are calculated based on four indicators: undernourishment, child wasting, child stunting, and child mortality.
  • The 2023 GHI shows that, after many years of progress up to 2015, the world’s hunger situation remains largely at a standstill. The 2023 GHI score for the world is 18.3, considered moderate and less than one point below the world’s 2015 GHI score of 19.12.
  • India ranks 111th out of the 125 countries with sufficient data to calculate 2023 GHI scores3. With a score of 28.7, India has a level of hunger that is serious.
  • India’s score has improved slightly from 29.3 in 2015, but it is still higher than the scores of its neighboring countries such as Bangladesh (25.8), Nepal (20.8), and Pakistan (24.6).
  • Some of the factors that contribute to India’s high hunger level are poverty, inequality, lack of access to safe water and sanitation, poor health care, climate change, and conflicts.
