New Production System Needed To Tackle Global Food Crisis, Says UN Expert.
PDF File Size: 62 KB | Download   
The situation of hunger in the world is alarming. As a result of the current crisis, over 100 million more people have been driven into extreme poverty. Today, 925 million people are hungry in the world, up from 848 million in the period 2003-5. Progress towards the realization of the first Millenium Development Goal, to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, has been reversed in all regions. Even though prices of food commodities on international markets have been going down since their June 2008 peak, when the levels of real food prices were 64 percent above those of 2002, prices on domestic markets remain at historically high levels. In many countries, particularly developing net-food-importing countries, the brutal increase in prices in 2007 and the first half of 2008 has left severe marks on the poorest households. These families have reduced the quantity of food they consume. They have switched to poorer
diets, often lacking the necessary micronutrients children require for their development. They have cut back on schooling and on health care, leading to irreparable damage to the health and education of millions of children. They may have sold productive assets – land or tools – which will take time to restore.
