What is hunger? This of course seems to be a dumb or rhetorical question when posed to anyone. But how many of us have experienced hunger so bad that… Statistically, WFP (World Food Program) figures show us that about every six seconds a child dies of hunger related causes (State of Food Insecurity in the World). Also 1.02 billion people in the world are underfed, which is the equivalent of the populations of the USA, Canada and the EU countries put together. ( FAQ news release, 19 June 2009). A sizeable percentage of the world’s population suffers hunger and in some extreme cases, starvation on account of many factors like war and famine.
World hunger is one of the major problems we face today, especially in third world countries. It’s easy to say that we know how hunger feels when we have only experienced it for a couple of minutes, but don’t truly know what it means to live in hunger. These are some of the ways I personally think that world hunger can be solved: through the increase in specialization and exchange, creating of artificial water source for irrigation purposes, cutting down on waste (waste management measure) and educating countries on how to preserve food for each season.
Increase in specialization and exchange could be done in countries where their ground is not fertile enough to grow certain crops, thereby leading them to specialize in raring livestock for meat purposes and exchanging it with other countries that can grow other food crops. However the creation of artificial water sources like dams could be created to help the land become more fertile to be able to grow certain crops and diversify in the kind of crops that are being grown every season.
Another major thing would be the cutting down of food being wasted in the united states and other developed countries, where people especially in the united states eat large portions of food that end up not being finished and in many cases end in the trash. If each...
