The Global Hunger Index (GHI) is designed to measure and track hunger
globally and by region and country. Calculated each year over the past nine
years, it highlights successes and failures in hunger reduction, provides
insights into the drivers of hunger, and makes policy recommendations on how
to improve food and nutrition security.

The 2014 GHI shows that progress has been made in reducing the proportion of
hungry people in the world, however levels of hunger remain ‘alarming’ or
‘extremely alarming’ in many countries across the globe still.

This year the GHI focuses particularly on hidden hunger, where the lack of
vitamins and minerals causes serious, long term and irreversible health
effects.

This Infopoint Lunch-time conference [1] will provide fresh insight and
provide new data on the role that land and forests play in reaching 1.5°C.On
the eve of COP22 there are still major unanswered questions about the role
that land and forests play in emissions reductions commitments. How to ensure
the long-term global goal recognises the need to reduce emissions from land
use change or even increase the carbon sink (negative emissions) while
respecting social and environmental limits to land-based mitigation? How to
ensure that removals of CO2 do not dilute ambition to reduce fossil fuel
emissions?

The Science Forum series is a flagship event that was initiated by the
Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC) in 2009 under its remit of
Mobilizing Science. It serves as a means to reach out to scientists and
scientific communities largely external to the CGIAR, but who have
potentially important contributions to make to the CGIAR research portfolio
and its system level objectives of improving food security, human nutrition
and health, alleviation of poverty and environmental sustainability.
