Landowners also lost land due to the zamindari system (introduced by the British), which said that zamindars were the landowners and that they had to collect the rent from peasants. Craftsmen were ruined by the large-scale rush of cheap British manufactured goods into India, which made their handmade goods uneconomical, closing their business.

If we reduce food wastage it could help to provide food to the starving people. More than one-third of the food manufactured worldwide is discarded or spoiled. Consequences of food wastage are not only limited to the human beings but also the environment as it leads to climatic changes. In industrialized countries, a lot of waste is produced due to consumers who buy too much chuck out what they do not need. In developing countries like India, food wastage is mostly due to ineffective agriculture and lack of food storage facilities.
Which means that the population doesn’t have money to utilize the decent amount of water supply. This can be originated from lack of government spending and uneven distribution of the natural resources. However, the physical water scarcity affects all regions where people lives with the limited water supply, such as Eastern Australia, Middle East, North Africa, Central and Eastern Asia. Physical and economic water scarcity Physical water scarcity means that there is limited water supply.

The effect on the economy: Market competition is limited and therefore famers have minimum control over farm prices, they continue to receive smaller portions from consumers. Economic pressures have lead to a loss of farms which contributes to the disintegration of rural communities and localised marketing systems. This makes it challenging for potential farmers to enter the business today. The effect on one’s health: Potential health hazards are tied to sub-therapeutic use of antibiotics in animal production, and pesticide and nitrate contamination of water and food. Farm workers are poisoned in fields, toxic residues are found on foods, and certain human and animal diseases have developed resistance to currently used
