Al Jazeera’s Inside Story programme reports on IDS’s new Hunger and Nutrition Commitment Index (HANCI). Research findings from HANCI show that low income countries like Malawi and Madagascar and lower middle income Guatemala, are leading the charge against hunger and undernutrition. However, economic powerhouses such as India and Nigeria are failing some of their most vulnerable citizens. Inside Story asks whether booming Global South economies are doing enough to alleviate the suffering of the downtrodden.
IDS research fellow Dolf te Lintelo is featured in the programme.
