As a part of our commitment to food and nutrition security, DuPont commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to develop a comprehensive measurement tool that addresses the need for specific metrics to illustrate what food security looks like at the local level – country by country and globally.
Since its launch in 2012, the Global Food Security Index has been updated annually, allowing for year-over-year comparisons. Our hope is that the comprehensive and unique information available in this tool will help inform decision making that leads to sustainable solutions.

Although science provides answers that can be applied universally, DuPont’s experience shows that solutions must be found at the local level to help people improve their lives and livelihoods.
