World is Losing Ground in Fight Against Hunger - New Report

World efforts to lower hunger to zero by 2030 are being negated by warfare and climate change, nutritionists warn. German aid organisation Welthungerhilfe (World Hunger Relief) has published a hunger index which categorises 51 nations where hunger is alarming. The highest hunger rates continue to be found in Africa south of the Sahara, with the Central African Republic being the worst country for hunger.
