In this topic,we have had several discussions such as world as world hunger solving,where our food comes from,why we can't just share,food waste and alternative food such as bug burgers and critter curries.However all these were are just projections of the big discussion "FOOD CRISIS".
There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone on the planet. Yet as many as 828 million people still go hungry across the globe.According to "www.actionagainsthunger.org" "After steadily declining for a decade, world hunger is on the rise, affecting nearly 10% of people globally. From 2019 to 2022, the number of undernourished people grew by as many as 150 million" but what exactly is causing the rise in world hunger. Such hunger has also led to death and lack of as access to nutritious food.In this case many Women and Children are vulnerably affected.But what are the root causes of hunger in the world.
Climate change in form of Drought, floods, fires, heatwaves, and other climate shocks are driving people from their homes, destroying livelihoods, and pushing communities deeper into hunger and over 1million people were displaced by drought in Somalia Since January 2021. Climate change has a dramatic impact on the quantity and nutritious quality of food produced around the world in that and research says that there is an 11%projected drop in rice yields by 2050 due the increase in temperature.It also contaminates and threatens water supply and over 700 million people are affected by water scarcity.If you I ask me I think this is the biggest cause because many people are oblivious to their activities such as industrial air pollution which results in global warming thus hunger issues and it not the increase because it's ignored and pollution levels are still high in many countries.
1.CONFLICTS AND WARS
An estimated 60% of the world’s hungry people live in countries experiencing active conflict,the most lively example is the war in Ukraine.Many have died in that war but obviously where there is conflict, there is hunger due to the destruction of food sources and researchers say that the war has reduced the food production and exportation if fertilizers from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus which in return affects other countries in food production thus hunger because those countries will have food insecurity and so they wouldn't be able to share with the vulnerable such as those in war zones hence increased deaths.Besides that,there other causes such as wide spread poverty that many many can't afford nutritious food and also the natural calamities/disasters such as landslides aslo destroy many people's livelihoods making them unable to put food on their plates.In my opinion,since there is enough food in the world,why don't we just share. Well this was an actual discussion in this topic but I think that those with more food are either just selfish and want to survive alone or they are also only able to produce enough food for themselves and sharing would bring them into insecurity.I don't for sure what to conclude about that but I think we should have a sharing heart because it's not human to see another suffer yet you have access.
Well,the world food crisis can be overcome if we pay more attention to things bringing about climate change forexample countries should focus on reducing their emissions, protecting and conserving the waters sources such as lakes and Oceans.Using greener sources of energy and alternative fuels such as biogas and natural gas,Planting more trees and promoting more sustainability as a whole.
For the case of conflicts,we could just solve them by sitting on a round table and talking it through rather than bombing and gun shots because these affect many innocent lives and hinder the development of our countries,peace be spread.
And for those with more than enough,please share a portion of what you have with the poor and donate funds to help those affected by disasters.This way we shall overcome hunger in the world.
It's everyone's responsibility to fight for a hunger free world.2 million children die every year from malnutrition. Help save lives and create a world free from hunger
