The key findings of the 2013 Hunger and Nutrition Commitment Index are: Guatemala claims top spot for the 2nd year in a row, however competition is heating up Some low ranked countries are demonstrating a clear improvement in commitment but others appear to be going backwards Guinea Bissau, Sudan and Myanmar languish at the bottom of the rankings Guatemala claims top spot for the 2nd year in a row, however competition for HANCI’s top spot it heating up. In the HANCI 2013, Guatemala is closely followed by Peru. The gap between Guatemala (2012 HANCI leader) and the other top countries has declined. Guatemala’s ‘rivals’ showed net improvements across all indicators, whereas Guatemala saw a weaker absolute performance. Some low ranked countries are demonstrating a clear improvement in commitment. Afghanistan, Angola, Burundi, Liberia and Myanmar are all showing improvements. They have made progress on a variety of indicators (although there are some indicators on which they have not improved). Guinea Bissau, Sudan and Myanmar languish at the bottom of the rankings and are demonstrating a decline in relative commitment compared to last year. These countries are increasingly getting left behind. This polarisation in the lower regions of the index is a cause for concern.
