19 Aug Effective World Hunger Solutions
While the food industries are one of the most profitable industries in the world, it is not able to solve the problem of world hunger. There are hundreds of charities working to provide food, clothing, and shelter to the needy. Some of them have been effective in helping certain parts of the world, while others are still not sufficed to provide food to all. There have been several debated solutions put forth by people to stop world hunger, which can be adapted soon.
Outlaw Land Grabbing
The biggest and wealthiest companies are aggressively spreading their industries for resources and land. This is affecting the natives, and they are left with no land to grow their crops. Agricultural land should be prohibited from being used as an industry. This is often found in Africa, Latin America, and Eastern Europe where the industries are popping up their factories everywhere to produce food, biofuels, or real estates for rich people.
With more and more rural areas becoming urbanized, there is a need to carry on agriculture to the urban environment. People need to be informed about the benefits of urban forestry and agriculture. It will give people control over their own food resources, which can result in insufficient distribution of food to all.
Education is the most important need to eradicate poverty and hunger. It is necessary to provide education to the remotest areas of the world to connect them with the rest of the world. It will be beneficial for underdeveloped countries to increase their growth rate. It will open up more opportunities to access income and food. Some countries have also initiated food-for-education programs where free food is provided to children coming to school.
Birth Control Education
One of the main causes of the increase in world hunger and poverty is overpopulation. Proper education is needed for people to control the birth rate, especially in underdeveloped countries as it will be hard for them to manage the employment of a larger crowd in future which will result in poverty and hunger. This is a plan which needs to be adopted at the initial stages to avoid hunger problems in future. Allowing the families to learn family planning and their economy can help benefit this problem.
Social change is needed almost in every country. Let’s face it. None of the countries is doing well in maintaining harmony and peace today. There are conflicts in every community and region. The fear of war has always been a blockage to solve world hunger. Only when the world powers such as the United States, the European Union and Russia work together to solve these problems together, we can witness an instant improvement. The developed nations have to wake up and focus on these issues as well as pressure their governments to take the right actions for this cause. It is, however, a slow process, but people need to be patient. Only then world hunger can controlled and solved faster.
