The 2013 HANCI report, released in June 2014, builds upon the previous findings first presented in April 2013. It uses the same methodology to give an updated picture drawing on the latest available secondary data. New primary research is presented from 6 HANCI countries – Bangladesh, India, Malawi, Nepal, Tanzania and Zambia.
The HANCI project also produces an index to determine overall political commitment of donor countries to tackling hunger and undernutrition. This considers factors such as 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.
In 2012 HANCI 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.
