According to the United Nations report, the number of hungry
people in the world is growing in large extent.
The main cause is due to climate change that is wreaking
havoc on crop production in much of the developing world,
The number of hungry people facing chronic food deprivation
increased to 821 million in 2017 from 804 million in 2016, reversing recent
South America and Africa showed the worst increase.
Climate variability, extreme drought and floods are already
undermining production of wheat, rice and maize in tropical and temperate
regions, and that the trend is expected to worsen as temperatures increase and
become more extreme.
With hunger on the rise for the past three years, the report
called for policies to target groups most vulnerable to malnutrition, including
infants, children, adolescent girls and women.
It called for greater efforts to promote policies that help
communities build resilience.
If the world is failing today with a population at 7.5
billion and all the wealth and technology that is available.
But 30 years from now when world have 10 billion people,
when people in London, in Washington, D.C., and Chicago and Paris don’t have
