According to the Global Hunger Index Report of 2023, Malawi is one of 125 nations worldwide experiencing significant levels of hunger and malnutrition in the year 2023.

According to the research, Malawi is ranked 88 on the list of countries that would suffer significant challenges related to hunger and nutrition during the lean season of 2023–2024.

According to the GHI report for 2023, Malawi is ranked number 88 out of 125 countries, and the nation continues to confront issues regarding food and nutrition security. This means that during the lean season of 2023-2024, 5.2 million Malawians would be at risk of suffering from severe hunger.

Minister of Youth and Sports Uchizi Mkandawire said in response to the report: “The government has put in place several mechanisms to address hunger issues, such as the introduction of mega farms to address issues of food security in the country.”

“Permit me to applaud Concern Worldwide and its partners for coming out with the research, emphasizing that Malawi ranks 88 out of 125 countries to face hunger in the lean season, affecting around 5.2 million people nationwide. I would also like to point out that the report reveals that Malawi ranks number 88 out of 125 countries that suffer hunger in the dry season.

“However, the government is working to address food security concerns throughout the country through a variety of interventions, such as the implementation of mega farming projects.”

“The report also underscores the importance of youth in shaping food security, and indeed, we are doing all we can to ensure the youth are involved and that their voices are heard,” according to Mkandawire.
