Feeding those facing chronic hunger

2014-01-30 06:55

Chronic hunger is such an inter-relating problem, stretching over such vast geographies that it requires a multidimensional and sustainable solution. Therefore the solution must be pro-active in its aims and not merely reactive to the symptoms of society’s failings.

·         98% of the world’s under nourished live in developing/third world countries

In conclusion, conquering chronic hunger and malnutrition must be seen as a priority with equal access to quality food synonymous to its aims. Governments of third world countries must see the feeding of their people as a long-term responsibility requiring sustainable solutions. Emergency solutions to short-term factors of malnutrition exist but other structural solutions must be evident such as sustained government intervention to improve and develop agricultural activities in developing countries. Only then will chronic hunger, from which so many people suffer, be given the attention it deserves.
