New HANCI donor index launched: UK ranked amongst donors with strongest commitment

NEWS RELEASE: UK ranked amongst donors with strongest commitment to reducing hunger and undernutrition in developing countries

New research by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) has ranked the UK as performing relatively better than most other developed nations over the past decade at meeting its overseas aid spending commitments on ending undernutrition. The Hunger and Nutrition Commitment Index (HANCI) has ranked the UK with the highest overall score out of 23 OECD members despite its overseas aid spending on nutrition programmes accounting for a lower proportion of its wealth than countries like Denmark and Canada.

HANCI’s new Donor Index measures a wide range of factors to determine overall political commitment of donor countries to tackling hunger and undernutrition. These include the amount of aid given for agriculture, food security and nutrition and policies and treaties that could impact on hunger and nutrition levels in poor countries.
