If hunger were simply a matter of food production, no one would go without. There is more than enough food produced annually to provide every living person with a healthy diet, yet so many suffer from food shortages, unsafe water and malnutrition every year. That's because hunger is a complex political, economic, and ecological phenomenon.
The interplay of these forces produces a geography of hunger that the authors illuminate in this book. They use a conceptual framework informed by geography and agricultural economics to present a hunger index that combines food availability, household access and nutritional outcomes into a single tool - one that delivers a fuller understanding of the scope of global hunger, its underlying mechanisms, and the ways in which the goals for ending hunger can be achieved.
