Home to the world’s second-largest population, the country fared poorly on the Global Hunger Index (GHI, pdf) for 2017 released by the Washington-based International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) on Thursday (Oct. 12). India ranked 100 out of 119 countries on the GHI, worse than last year’s position of 97 out of 118. A lower ranking is indicative of a higher rate of malnutrition and hunger.
