Cesvi and its partner Alliance2015 will present a world preview of the 2017 Global Hunger Index.

Developed and adopted by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the Global Hunger Index is a statistical tool for collecting data on world hunger and malnutrition from different countries and offers a multidimensional measurement of hunger at a national, regional and global level.

The Global Hunger Index indicates progress and failure in individual countries and in macro regions across the world. It aids in understanding which policies and concrete actions must be taken in the fight against hunger. Published for the first time in 2006, it is compiled with the collaboration of the German NGO Welthungerhilfe and Ireland’s Concern Worldwide, European partners in the Alliance2015 network. The Italian edition has been compiled by Cesvi since 2008.

Speakers: Giorgio Gori, Mayor of Bergamo, Mons. Francesco Beschi, Bishop of Bergamo, Maurizio Martina, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Policy, Maria Elena Boschi, Secretary of the Council of Ministers, Phil Hogan, European Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, Daniela Bernacchi, CEO of Cesvi, Dominic MacSorley, President of Alliance2015.

Moderator: Paolo Magri, Executive Vice President and Director ISPI.

Organized by: Cesvi and Alliance2015
