A large map of the world represents the world, divided by the levels of hunger. The black colour represents countries with not sufficient calories per person per day, the green colour the countries with sufficient, jet unbalanced food and the yellow areas mark the countries with rich nourishment and too many calories per person per day. The grey colour showcases the areas without data. The red dots mark the average consumption of the animal proteins per person. The map was based on the data, provided in 1962 in two scientific publications.
The charts on the bottom represent the relation between food production, need, population and sizes of the continents.
The map was made as a part of a program by the United Nations, which ran between 1963 and 1965.
The Firm JRO (also known as JRO-Verlag Carl Kremling) was founded in Munich in 1922 and was taken over by MairDumont in 1992. The firm was known for its geographic and thematic maps with updated data and its globes. Between 1954 and 1989 it published a series Aktuelle JRO-Landkarte [Updated JRO Map] with various thematic maps on contemporary subjects, such us ours.
According to the imprint each month on the 28th two maps were published in to different sizes: in a normal size and as a wall map.
