Hungry: 795 million people, or one in nine—UN Hunger Report

India is home to the highest number of hungry people in the world, at 194 million, surpassing China, says the United Nations annual hunger report.

The number of hungry people in China are 133.8 million in 2014-15, says the report.

Countries with more than 40 percent of the populations undernourished:

Zambia: 7.4 million people or 47.8 % of the population
Central African Republic: 2.3 million or 47.7 %
Namibia: 1 million or
42.3 %
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea: 10.5 million or 41.6 %

The number of hungry people globally has declined from about 1 billion 1990 to about 795 million this year, despite a surge in population growth, according to the report.

However, the Moderators were unable to independently verify the figures in the United Nations’ annual hunger report, which is published jointly by the Food and Agriculture Organization, the International Fund for Agricultural Development and the World Food Program.
