Analysis on Food Security

Overview

undefined

The members of the United Nations found great value in the analysis
you provided on the effects of global warming that result from
population growth. They are now asking you write an additional analysis
to include further issues related to population growth. Here is the
issue they have asked you to consider:

The member states of the United Nations seek to build food systems
that can provide global food security which will feed everyone,
everywhere, every day by improving food quality though the promotion of
effective and nutritional agricultural practices. The crucial issue is
not the lack of food in the world but the access to that food. In many
developing countries, food shortages are due to governmental control
over food distribution. These governments maintain control of the
population and their power by limiting access to nutritious food to
certain groups. In this practice, they thereby “weaponize” food.

Your second project as a consultant for the United Nations is to
develop an analysis that addresses three issues related to global food
insecurity caused by global population growth and poverty, and to
explore these issues in a developing country of your choosing.
