This article will bring you to the list of the hungriest countries in the world in 2018. Insider Monkey has recently published an edifying article about it. Starving countries of 2018 all have several issues plaguing them: war, poverty, and inequality to name a few. Sadly, the continent most prone to these problems is none other than Africa. In fact, with a few exceptions, our article could easily be dubbed as one listing the hungriest countries in Africa. Africa also has the most representation when it comes to enumerating the countries suffering from famine in 2018. This year saw South Sudan officially declaring famine in some of its areas. Nigeria, Somalia and the Middle Eastern country of Yemen are not far behind.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the hungriest countries in the world in 2018 from their list.
The first country is Timor-Leste, where the global hunger index is 34.3. First of the two Asian nations on our list, Timor-Leste has managed a significant improvement in its GHI from 46.8 in 2008 to 34.3 in 2017. The next country on our sad list should be Niger, where the global hunger index is is 34.5. Niger has battled widespread droughts time and time again, which is why it has bagged the ninth spot on our list of hungriest countries in the world in 2018. For the third country that struggles with hunger we should mention Liberia, where the global hunger index is 35.3. With Liberia, we move from nations with “serious” hunger situations to “alarming” ones on our list of the hungriest countries in the world in 2018. At last, but not least let’s check out Sudan’s numbers, where the global hunger index is 35.5. The report doesn’t present Sudan’s previous year results for us to compare how the situation has improved or worsened but it seems to be doing better than its southern counterpart all the same.
