The information was made public on Tuesday by the Pakistani GHI chapter.

Pakistan was ranked 99th overall by the GHI out of 121 nations.

According to a statement from the GHI, up to 828 million people may now be facing hunger as a result of armed conflicts, climate change, and the recent coronavirus outbreak, according to Dawn.

“As things are, 46 countries will not even reduce hunger to a negligible level by 2030, much less completely eradicate it. South of the Sahara and South Asia continue to have the highest rates of hunger in Africa. The GHI statement continued, “South Asia, the region with the highest degree of hunger in the world, has the highest child stunting rate and by far the highest child wasting rate of any world region.

The Global Hunger Index (GHI) is a pre-reviewed annual report that Welthungerhilfe and Concern Worldwide jointly produce with the intention of increasing public awareness of the fight against hunger.

Aisha Jamshed, country director for Welthungerhilfe, stated that her organisation collaborates with the public sector, the government, and the private sector to support communities that lack access to food and foster resilience.

According to Dawn, Shafat Ali, director of the Local Government and Community Development Department (LGCDD), Punjab, stated that he brought attention to the problem in order to ensure public involvement, action, and monitoring as well as take into account the local context when transforming food systems.

Stakeholders were advised to use local voices and resources at all governance levels.

The report also stated that communities, civil society, small farmers, producers, and indigenous groups should have a say in how the availability of nutrient-dense food is managed.
