2006 Global Hunger Index Wiesmann, Doris. 2006.
2006 Global Hunger Index: A Basis for Cross-Country Comparisons.

Washington, DC: International Food Policy Research Institute.

October 13, 2006 - Issue Brief No. 47

The fight against hunger and undernutrition has been a long-standing component of development efforts. Strategies to improve food security and nutrition are not only worth pursuing for their own sake, but are also key elements of poverty reduction. In spite of this, progress in combating hunger and malnutrition has been lagging for decades. Best practices to combat hunger and undernutrition have been available for a long while, but a lack of political will among leaders and a lack of political power among the poor have hampered their implementation.

The IFPRI Global Hunger Index was first presented in a joint report produced by IFPRI and German Agro Action [Deutsche Welthungerhilfe] for World Food Day, October 16, 2006.
