Hunger and Poverty Links

Hunger Notes is pleased to present its hunger and poverty links, which are revised several times a year to (try to) keep up with issues and excellent new information available electronically.

The links are divided into the areas below, covering key parts of the world and key issues. HN has tried to focus on the most important links and thus keep the number of links under 100. In each section, HN lists major institutions that correspond to that section, such as the World Bank in the “International Development…” section below. Then HN lists key organizations that provide alternative views of issues covered in the section.

In each section, HN has tried to include links to a broader number of organizations. With respect to information for a specific country, in addition to consulting the regional area, such as “Africa,” please also consult the “General” page, as many institutions listed there provide information for every country in the world.
