One of the major cause of global food crisis is conflict when there is conflict farmer are force to abandon their farms in other to run or save their lives. As a result of conflict for example the conflict between Ukraine and Russia has casus a high sky rocking in the price of some agricultural product e.g. grains and oilseed. In Nigeria as a result of the activities of Boko harm terrorist the is a rise in the cost of some agricultural product e.g., onions. conflict goes a long way in the cause of global food crisis.
LACK OF AGRICULTURAL FACILITIES
The issues of global food prices the major concern of everyone is the finished or matured crops no one is bothered about how the farmer go about in other to get their facilities, the main focus is meant to be on how the crops are produced because the are a lot of framer who have left the business as a result of lack of agricultural facilities.
Climate change causes rising temperatures, heavy rainfall, severe storms, and extended periods of drought.
Many crops fail due to these extreme weather conditions. This has consequences not only for the farmers themselves, but also for the food they produce, and thus for global food security.
Monoculture harms biodiversity
The mainstream form of agriculture, in which farmers only grow one crop on one piece of land, depletes the soil and negatively affects biodiversity. Monoculture causes soil exhaustion, while healthy soil is vital for CO2 absorption. Harmful chemicals exacerbate this problem. A monoculture also scares off bees and other essential pollinators. Without the help of these hardworking critters, our future food supply is in serious jeopardy.
2) Food sector emits a lot of greenhouse gases
The food sector is responsible for more than a third of greenhouse gases worldwide. This concerns all links in the process: the way we produce, process, package and transport food, up to and including consumption. We know that meat production emits significant amounts of CO2 and growing rice produces a lot of methane. But transporting food by boats or planes is also extremely polluting. And finally, waste: not only does waste processing release a lot of greenhouse gases, but plastic litter also causes great damage to the environment.
Forests disappear in favour of agriculture
About 80% of all forests that are being cut down worldwide, have to make way for agricultural land. The wry irony is: forests are indispensable in the fight against climate change because they absorb CO2.
