The Global Food Security Index, developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and sponsored by DuPont, is an annual benchmarking tool—currently in its third year—that compares the state of food security in 109 developed and developing countries across 28 indicators. It examines the core issues of food security—affordability, availability and quality & safety—to create a deeper dialogue on the drivers of, and solutions to, food security. The new 2014 website features an interactive visualization of the Index results, the underlying Excel model and findings and methodology report for the most recent study.
Find on the newly redesigned Index website resource page two special reports that take a closer look at obesity and food loss.
The Burden of Obesity: Its Relationship with Food Security is a special report that coincides with the third edition of the Global Food Security Index (GFSI), an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) study commissioned by DuPont. This report discusses the growing prevalence of obesity and its relationship with food security.
Food Loss and Its Intersection with Food Security is a special report that coincides with the third edition of the Global Food Security Index (GFSI), an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) study commissioned by DuPont. This report discusses food loss and food waste and their impacts on food security. It explores the global occurrence of food wastage in developing and developed countries and along the food supply chain.
