      The indicator shows the total daily calorie supply per capita and the split into calories from animal products and vegetal products. It should not be confused with the per capita consumption of those products (calorie consumption) as calorie supply includes also losses through food distribution and mismanagement. The supply data are based on the food balance sheets (FBS) available at FAOSTAT. Data sources are primarily FAO questionnaires, national publications available in the ESS Library and Country visits by statisticians involving discussions with national experts. The food balance sheet shows the availability for human consumption for each food item i.e. each primary commodity, which corresponds to the sources of supply and its utilisation. The total quantity of all foodstuffs produced in a country added to the total quantity imported and adjusted to any change in stocks that may have occurred since the beginning of the reference period, gives the supply available during that period. Data on per capita food supplies are expressed in terms of quantity and by applying appropriate food composition factors for all primary and processed products. The data for this indicator can also be expressed in terms of its energy value. More information can be found in the FAO Handbook on Food Balance Sheets

      Around the world, one in eight people go to bed hungry every night, even though there is enough food for everyone. Our graph illustrates how over consumption, misuse of resources and waste are common elements of a system that leaves hundreds of millions without enough to eat.

      Global Hunger Index, 2023 The 2023 Global Hunger Index shows that since 2015 little progress has been made in reducing hunger. The 2023 GHI score for the world is 18.3, considered moderate. This is less than one point below the world’s 2015 GHI score of 19.1, indicating that progress on reducing hunger has largely stalled. In contrast, between 2000, 2008, and 2015, the world made significant headway against hunger. There has been an increase in the prevalence of undernourishment, one of the indicators used in the calculation of GHI scores, rising from a low of 7.5 percent in 2017 to 9.2 percent in 2022.
