The crops can be affected by many different ways leading to a shortage of food. This can range from drought to poor farmers or weak agricultural country. The reasons for poor farmers are bad governance, terrible policies and mass corruption in the government . The poor farmers, who cannot afford a tractor, rent it which can cost them more money than buying a new one . There are however many farmers who still use old methods greatly reducing their crop output just because they find new machinery strange and unreliable.
6.2 Unemployment According to Swanepoel (2016:7) unemployment is regarded as a source and effect of poverty in which people suffers from. It is a source because no job, no income. In addition, poor people cannot afford decent houses, nutritious food, medical aid and sending children to decent schools. Unemployment is the effect of poverty because weakness is caused by eating unhealthy food, poor housing and lack of access to education stop people from getting jobs.
It’s simple. Malnutrition suppresses the functions of one’s immune system. While the ordinary population suffers with food shortage, the ones in power are most likely eating whatever they want whenever they want. The discrimination to unequal access to food is truly disturbing. What is the point to stay in a country
Although food is available in the local markets persons especially the vulnerable are unable to purchase the basic food item. Due to the current economic crisis Jamaicans are experiencing some form of loss of income or income generation opportunities or employment are therefore lack the purchasing power needed to access healthy affordable food This lack of access to food can result in hunger (food deprivation), malnutrition (deficiencies, imbalances, or excesses of nutrients), and famine. Hunger has a negative impact on a person’s wellbeing as it reduces natural defences against diseases, which is the main risk factor for illness worldwide. In addition high food price is of utmost concern to
Famines, in many cases, affect populations disproportionately, with some ethnicities facing worse conditions than other parts of the populace. This reality is rooted in the country’s social dynamics and the human construct of divisions between groups of people. Minority groups are discriminated against, and that usually resulted in them having the least amount of access to food in times of famine, as was experienced by marginalized peoples in Somalia. The two minority clans that were the most disproportionately affected by the famines of the early 1990s and 2011 are the Reewin and Bantu. These clans live in the rural regions of Somalia and make their living off of agricultural pursuits.
I personally love Trader Joes, however, the average African American family cannot afford to buy organic groceries on a regular basis. There is very distinct difference in the quality of life amongst those afforded the opportunity to purchase healthier foods as oppose to those whom are
The findings of the investigation will make them benefited and will make them to be aware of the importance of food safety, hygiene and sanitation and for them to take precautionary measures to avoid unsafe food that will lead to food borne illness. Cafeteria Employees. This study will make them aware about proper food handling as mandated by the Sanitation Code of the Philippines and the significant roles they play in providing safe food that will contribute to improved guests’ safety. Likewise, by knowing the standard operating procedures (SOP) in operation, they would improve food service and increase
No Hunger: Achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture Hunger is an effect of poverty and poverty is largely a political issue. (While manifesting itself as an economic issue, conditions causing poverty are political and end up being economic.) , people are hungry not due to lack of availability of food, but because people do not have the ability to purchase food and because distribution of food is not equitable. In addition, there is also a lot of politics influencing how food is produced, who it is produced by (and who benefits), and for what purposes the food is produced (such as exporting rather than for the hungry, feedstuff, etc.) This goal has a series of targets to support the four interrelated
Increasing population around the world form a major crisis due to lack of availability of food to provide the need of food for increasing number of people especially in poor communities, so the food is provided by genetic engineering ,the problem has fixed by providing the needs of food in poor countries in terms of increased in the production in the developed countries so the extent of their production are giving to the poor countries and this large production of crops because of the availability of new technologies Special to increase production and improve the quality and nutritional value, and disease and pest control and improved genetic traits for crop varieties. According to Parrlberg. R(2001) there are many advantages of modified crops ,such as increasing the nutritional value of the food by adding some vitamins such as adding vitamin A to the gold rice .Another example of genetically modified crops is Corn which is genetically modified to resist various herbicides and to express a protein from bacillus that kills certain insects.
This caused the farmers to not be able to produce a sufficient amount of food to cover for the population. By fixing the dams and digging numerous wells, this will enable the farmers to grow more produce instead of importing them from overseas. The harsh weather, lack of water, and the incompatibility of the soil (sand) made up 75% of Algerian land therefore, these factors worsened the food stability in the region. By utilizing certain technologies such as irrigation systems, green houses, and fertilization, this will help increase the production of food. Additional solutions involve a treaty to restore diplomatic relations with the Maghreb region.
Unstable markets cause fluctuations in food product prices, which affect the majority of the population, because they live in poverty. Poverty stricken families and neighborhoods simply cannot afford most food, and when food product prices are unstable, it is almost impossible for them to get the nutrition they need to survive. “Over one billion people in the world live under one dollar a day.” (Felling 57) Given this number, it is impossible for those one billion people to afford the nutrition they need daily, let alone when the food prices fluctuate.
The key driver behind obesity is poor nutrition. This is influenced by a range of socio economic and cultural factors. It includes a lack of access to fresh and healthy food as well as a lack of nutrition education among people living in rural areas. In rural areas, local businesses do not sell quality fruits and vegetables, because it is too expensive. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare the supply of healthy food to remote and rural areas is periodic and there is a limited choice.
