    Assessing the levels of hunger and food insecurity is essential for alerting decision makers, ensuring accountability, and developing and monitoring policies aimed at addressing hunger. The “Voices of the Hungry” Project is an effort to develop a global Food and Nutrition Security indicator based on people’s own perceptions of hunger. Building on prior experiences of partners, FAO developed the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES), an experience-based measurement tool consisting of a set of questions about people’s access to adequate food. The project has achieved remarkable results. It contracted the Gallup World Poll to apply the FIES survey module to at least 140 countries from 2014 to 2016, to test the robustness of the FIES in different cultures, languages and livelihood conditions. It also provided support to around 60 countries to integrate the FIES in their national surveys. FIES was endorsed as an official indicator to monitor SDG2 - End Hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

    FAO’s Voices of the Hungry Project has developed a new global standard for estimating the number of people experiencing food insecurity, called the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). The FIES was first incorporated into the Gallup World Poll (GWP) questionnaire in January 2014, making it possible for FAO to provide annual country-level estimates of the prevalence of food insecurity at different levels of severity. This booklet presents briefs on the researcher that were involved int he VoH project and have been carrying out high-level research to deepen our understanding of food insecurity in the world through exploration of the data generated by the GWP.

    This brochure provides an overview of the Voices of the Hungry project and introduces the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). The scale measures the ability of individuals or households to access food, and consists of eight questions referring to food-related experiences and behaviors when food access is constrained. The brochures describes the application of the FIES in the annual Gallup World Poll as well as its potential as a powerful tool for Governments to use for identifying at-risk sub populations. Information gathered with the FIES can contribute to more effective policies and interventions as well as raising political will to eradicate hunger.
