Global Hunger Index 2015

How do hunger and armed conflicts correlate? The Global Hunger Index 2015 analyzes this context and provides statistics of hunger and poverty worldwide.


More than 13 million people were uprooted by violence in 2014. Most left, propelled by conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan, and Somalia. An average of 42,500 people per day fled their homes in 2014. Approximately 59.5 million people are displaced by conflict and persecution worldwide, the highest level ever recorded. Increasing numbers of people are being caught in a "conflict trap" that holds them in poverty. Today, displaced people spend an average of more than 17 years in camps or with host communities.

The series of reports tracks the state of hunger worldwide and country by country, putting a spotlight on those regions and countries where action is most needed to address hunger
