With approximately 1.35 billion citizens, India is home to more people than all of Africa. Although the country has made progress in poverty reduction in recent years, food security is often lacking, especially in rural areas. Increasingly frequent droughts brought about by climate change are partly to blame. Another cause of hunger and poverty is the marginalisation of women, indigenous populations and members of the lower castes. They are more likely to go hungry, less likely to attend school and have poorer access to medical care.
