In the 2019 Global Hunger Index, Georgia ranks 39th out of
qualifying countries. With a score of 9.2, Georgia suffers from a level of hunger that is low .
GHI scores are calculated using a three-step process that
draws on available data from various sources to capture the multidimensional
nature of hunger.
First, for each country, values are determined for four
- UNDERNOURISHMENT: the share of the population that
is undernourished (that is, whose caloric intake is insufficient);
- CHILD WASTING: the share of children under the
age of five who are wasted (that is, who have low weight for their height,
reflecting acute undernutrition);
- CHILD STUNTING: the share of children under the
age of five who are stunted (that is, who have low height for their age,
reflecting chronic undernutrition); and
- CHILD MORTALITY: the mortality rate of children
under the age of five (in part, a reflection of the fatal mix of inadequate
nutrition and unhealthy environments)
- Yemen , Central African Republic (CAR) and Chad are among the word’s hungriest countries.
