The people suffers from great famine and war that cause about 3.2 million in Somalia needs the support of foods and refugee camp to survive (Washington, 2011). The food shortage make the food inflation go drastically high. Although that the United Nation tries to feed 170,000 people a day in a refugee camp, still there are many people who live outside the camp that needs food and a home (Washington Post, 2011). Because of the insufficient foods, children died at the young age because of malnutrition. This problem attracts every attention from all countries to help them to build a better place for Somalia.
Also, massive increases in food prices, due to inflation, can drastically impact the accessibility of food to populations facing shortages. Finally, ethnic divides and social constructs of tribes or clans play a big role in how people can be affected by a famine. Whether it is through dependency on specific agricultural practices or severe rivalries and competition amongst kin groups, there is a significant societal aspect as to how human actions can result in man-made famines. Food shortages and famines are a part of human history, but it has not been so integrated into the international sphere at the calibre it is
Sudan Civil War There is no such thing as a perfect society, and when countries strive to achieve this, nothing perfect is going to be produced. It is often shown in areas where one group of people believe that their way of living is of greater value than the others. The viewpoints a President and Vice President have based off of their religion, have the country of Sudan wrapped up in a civil war that could possibly be solved by the creation of a freedom of religion that would finally unite this country after war has erupted and casualties are countless. Sudan, a third world country located on the eastern side of Africa, has struggled with the absence of peace and stability throughout its politics and religion for the past fifty years.
The Government has taken measures to provide compensation on an ad hoc basis, but it has not sufficiently addressed issues such as land restitution, resettlements, the needs of women, children, and the elderly as well as medical and psychosocial support for victims. South Sudan War (2011 – present) A report from the OHCHR had reported that the scorched earth policy that was practiced by the South Sudanese government included a multitude of horrendous human rights violation including mass murder and rape in lieu of wages. More than 1,300 reports of rape were reported in just one of South Sudan’s ten states. An African Union commission of inquiry previously found that women of all ages were also raped and people were beaten before being burned alive. In the 12 months to November 2015, there were an estimated 10,553 civilian deaths in Unity State, 7,165 of them due to violence and 829 caused by drowning.
A recent BBC News article “Why are there still famines?” deals with the current occurrence of famine across the world and strives to explain the expression. According to the article, the famine is defined by the UN as s technical term and should be used carefully. For that reason, certain degrees of mortality, malnutrition, and hunger must be reached before the famine can be confirmed. These required factors are listed in the article and are as follow: at least 20% of households in an area face extreme food shortages with a limited ability to cope; acute malnutrition rates exceed 30%, and the death rate exceeds two persons per day per 10,000 persons (2017). It is in the interest of the country and its people who suffer from food deprivation that the famine is declared, regardless of the bad political image it creates, since it brings the attention of the whole world to the problem, and usually results in the joint effort to aid the country in question.
The Syrian refugee crisis is, in terms of scaling, worse than the Gulf war and NATO bombing of Kosovo and so on. The Middle East eye, reported that 51% of the people that are looking for refuge in other countries aren’t older than 18, 39% are even under the age of 11. The UN calculated the amount of money needed to help the Syrian refugees and it’s a staggering 7.7 million dollars. But what are they running from? Why are they so afraid of staying where they are?
It has been given worst scores for refugees and internally displaced people in addition with factionalised elites. 1. South Sudan: The world’s youngest as well as the most fragile state is having ongoing internal conflict since independence in 2011 that became all-out civil war in 2003. It is estimated that more than 1 million people have been displaced and additional 250,000 have fled to neighbouring

ntroduction The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), defines famine as a complete inaccessibility of food in a given area leading to death (Tran, 2012). The percentage of undernourished people, in sub-Saharan Africa, has increase from twenty eight per cent in 2004–2006 to twenty nine per cent in 2008, while developing countries have an average of seventeen percent for the same period (UN, 2009). This indicates a contradiction to achieving the Millennium Development Goal 1, which is to halve the population living in hunger by 2015 from 1990, both globally and in Africa. USAid funds the World Food Programme (WFP), a programme that initiated the Food Security Nutrition Assessment (FSNA), in order to monitor the world’s food security status.
