Community Voices

HANCI works with partners in 5 countries – Bangladesh, Malawi, Tanzania, Nepal and Zambia – to support effective advocacy and document the views and perceptions of communities affected by hunger and undernutrition. These views are not used in the calculation of the index rankings but are intended as additional evidence to inform governments about what communities think their commitment to respond to addressing hunger and undernutrition challenges could look like.

The slideshows and videos on this page present some of these views. We are grateful to all the communities involved for their participation.

Our partners from Action Aid Bangladesh visited several communities across the country, as well as as experts from governments and NGOs, to hear from them how they felt about their government’s efforts to reduce hunger and tackle undernutrition.
