Global food system is far from perfect: even though there is enough food for everyone on Earth ones go to bed hungry every night while others suffer from obesity and overweight. What is wrong with our...
food system which cannot provide people with enough of the right food and what could be done to treat these failings?
"The Good Enough to Eat Index" is the effort of OXFAM - international organization tackling poverty across the world – aimed exactly at addressing these issues. Capturing data from 8 different established sources for 125 countries, the Food Index depicts current situation in 4 main spheres of food system by means of 8 standardized indicators (2 indicators per each sphere).
These spheres are: sufficiency of food ("Enough to Eat" sub index), affordability of food ("Afford to Eat" sub index), quality of food (cognominal sub index) and impact of food on people's health ("Food for Health" sub index). Combined together, these sub-indices constitute the resulting food index giving an idea of overall quality of a country's food system. At the same time, consideration of index by components or indicators highlights some of the fields of critical concern and failures of both global and country-level food systems. Both the overall index and its components including indicators are standardized values ranging from 0 to 100 where 0 represents the best possible score and 100 is the worst possible score.
