The Atlas of World Hunger

July 9, 2010

A new book "The Atlas of World Hunger" was recently published by the University of Ilinois (U of I) and authored by  U of I geography professor Thomas Bassett and Ilinois agricultural and consumer economics Alex Winter-Nelson. The book reveals that the contours and causes of hunger are more complex but could be easily addressed. The authors developed a new method for assessing hunger, the "Hunger Vulnerability Index" (HVI) which locates the hungry as well as those at risk of falling into hunger.
