Transcript of World Hunger
1 in 7
If the Millennium Development Goal is achieved by 2050 there will still be 370 million hungry people.
The current population is set to rise to 9.1 billion people by 2050 and this means even more food will need to be produced for developed countries as well as third world countries.
By 2050 this number will increase to 3 billion tonnes.
72% of this food will be eaten by developed countries which is a large increase from today's 58%.
Today it is estimated that 2.1 billion tonnes of food is needed to keep the world fed.
13.5 of the world’s population is hungry.
That’s roughly 805 million people who go undernourished on a daily basis, consuming less than the recommended 2,100 calories a day.
1. Burundi (73.4% of population undernourished)
2. Comoros (70% undernourished)
3. Eritrea (65.4% undernourished)
4. Zambia (47.4% undernourished)
5. Ethiopia ( 40.2% starving)
6. Timor Leste (38% undernourished)
7. Madagascar (33.4%)
8. Chad (33.4% undernourished)
9. Yemen Republic (32.4% undernourished)
10. Sudan (25% undernourished with hunger rising)
The world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people, but those who go hungry either do not have land to grow food or money to purchase it.
Is it true? Why?
Where are there hungry people? How many are there?
How many will there be in 2050?
What causes world hunger and how can we prevent it?
There will always be hungry people in the world
Ten of the Hungriest Places in the World:
13.5% of the world is undernourished
That's 805 million people!
War & Conflict
Weather and Climate Change
If you have people living in poverty, this means that they are unable to buy food, buy tools needed to grow crops if they are farmers etc.
Education and poverty kind of go hand in hand, to earn money, you need an education to get higher paying jobs and sustain for your family. If you haven't received an education, this makes it difficult to find a job and get an income. Education needs to be more readily available and enforced. It also needs to be run by volunteers, or funds from outside sources, so that giving your child an education doesn't mean that it drives you into poverty.
Food needs to be distributed from countries that have more than enough food, to countries who cannot grow enough food to sustain their population.
To prevent world hunger, you need to limit the amount of war and conflict. War in 3rd world countries is especially bad, because countries that find it difficult providing food for themselves require assistance from aids such as World Vision. These organisation often find it difficult to enter the country that is at war and volunteers have to risk their lives to supply a country with food. Unfortunately, war is often occurring in 3rd world countries, so this perpetuates their food crisis.
Natural disasters decimate agricultural land, ruin the soil and make it unsuitable for farming, and washaway a farmer's livelihood. In developing countries, it also takes longer to recover from the damage that it has done. An arid climate can also make it difficult to produce food and farm.
Population growth means less food, spread out over a mass people who will inevitable undernourished. Population growth is mainly a problem in 3rd world countries because they lack contraception and obviously this is more of problem in those places, because they also lack the food to supply their growing population. A way to fix this is to educate people on birth control and make it more readily available.
