HUNGER : THE NEVER ENDING ROAD
AN ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUE
FACTS
1 in 5 people and 1 in 4 children worldwide suffers from hunger caused by lack of food
1 person dies every 2 sec. due to hunger
Population is increasing and as humans populate and pollute the earth, depleting its resources, less food is available
Can one person make a difference?
Step 3
POVERTY
Poor people do not have the resources—whether land, tools or money—needed to grow or buy food on a consistent basis.

Primary Causes Of Hunger



Poverty
Environmental Overload

Climate Change


Chronic Hunger
A famine is a widespread scarcity of food, caused by several factors including crop failure, population unbalance, or government policies. This phenomenon is usually accompanied or followed by regional malnutrition, starvation, epidemic, and increased mortality. ...

Many people in the world are living in severe poverty; they do not have enough money to buy food or land to grow what they need.

Environmental Overload

Over-consumption by wealthy nations and rapid population growth in poor nations strain natural resources and make it harder for poor people to feed themselves
https://www.freedomfromhunger.org/world-hunger-facts
As of 2008 (2005 statistics), the World Bank has estimated that there were an estimated 1,345 million poor people in developing countries who live on $1.25 a day or less.
Conflict
War disrupts agricultural production, and governments often spend more on arms than on social programs.
At the end of 2005, the global number of refugees was at its lowest level in almost a quarter of a century. Despite some large-scale repatriation movements, the last three years have witnessed a significant increase in refugee numbers, due primarily to the violence taking place in Iraq and Somalia. By the end of 2008, the total number of refugees under UNHCR’s mandate exceeded 10 million. The number of conflict-induced internally displaced persons (IDPs) reached some 26 million worldwide at the end of the year . Providing exact figures on the number of stateless people is extremely difficult But, important, (relatively) visible though it is, and anguishing for those involved conflict is less important as poverty (and its causes) as a cause of hunger.

Climate change is increasingly viewed as a current and future cause of hunger and poverty. Increasing drought, flooding, and changing climatic patterns requiring a shift in crops and farming practices that may not be easily accomplished.

The End

Food Waste
Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tons — gets lost or wasted.

Food loss and waste also amount to a major squandering of resources, including water, land, energy, labor and capital and needlessly produce greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to global warming and climate change.
