Hunger And Nutrition Commitment Index - HANCI

The Hunger and Nutrition Commitment Index (HANCI) ranks governments on their political commitment to tackling hunger and undernutrition. The index was created to provide greater transparency and public accountability by measuring what actions governments take, and what they fail to do to address it.

The index seeks to hold donors to account and assesses their performance against 14 indicators spanning the dimensions of agriculture and food security, nutrition, climate change, gender and social protection.
