Brookings Experts Discuss Role Of Improved Data In Reducing Global Hunger

Brookings Institution’s “Future Development”: Are we reducing hunger in the world?
Homi Kharas, interim vice president and director, and Lorenz Noe, senior research analyst, both for Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution, discuss the role of improved data in understanding trends in global hunger, writing, “It is heartening to see a recognition of the data quality problem, but no entity has the authorization to ensure that matters improve. … Our proposal is simple. There should be a technical working group to propose ways of improving the coverage, quality, and timeliness of outcome data on hunger” (4/5).
