On the Global Hunger Index Chart, Nigeria Ranks 103 out of 121.

Nigeria has just ranked 103rd out of 121 countries on the Global Hunger Index, 2022, published over the weekend.

The GHI, which is published jointly by Concern Worldwide and Welthungerhilfe, is an annual review and tracking of hunger at global, regional, and national levels. This year’s edition contains the ranking of 121 countries with reliable data.

The report categorized the hunger severity among countries on five levels – low, moderate, serious, alarming, and extremely alarming. However, according to the 2022 index, the level of hunger in Nigeria was on the ‘serious’ end.

The countries were graded on a scale of 0-100 (with zero meaning no hunger, while 100 means worst) based on the value of four indicators, namely: Undernourishment, Child stunting, Child wasting, and Child mortality.

Regardless, the level of hunger in Nigeria may worsen in the coming years, following the recent devastating effect of flooding in many parts of the country these past few weeks.

According to the Federal Government, more than 400,000 hectares of farmlands have been ravaged by floods this year. The floods, which were caused by rainfall and overflow of the Benue and Niger rivers, have claimed 603 lives, according to reports, and have displaced more than two million people nationwide, leaving many farmlands have been devastated.
