access_time2019-10-16 13:40:09


In the 2019 Global Hunger Index, Georgia ranks 39th out of  117 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 indicators:

  1. UNDERNOURISHMENT: the share of the population that is undernourished (that is, whose caloric intake is insufficient);
  2. 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);
  3. 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
  4. 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)
  5. Yemen , Central African Republic (CAR)  and Chad are among the word’s hungriest countries.
