DBQ: Famine in Ethiopia: How did the government make it worse? (hook)From 1983-1985, a famine in Ethiopia caused millions to die. In 1984, grain prices increased by 300% and five Ethiopian provinces set all-time lows for rainfall. Many people, blamed the famine on the drought, but later figured out that the real cause was politics. Soviet-backed communist Derg took over and worsened the famine.
In document seven we see a tweet from jessie saying there’s more food in Africa hen there is in Africa. Africa has rations for how much food people get, low ranking people get less food than high ranking people get. This isn’t fair because here are several kids I know who always have leftover food that they throw away. If the government set a worldwide ration per person, we could divide the food
The best way to end hunger and poverty on our planet is to mobilize these people. “Many organizations are helping people in poor countries to gain access to credit”(‘10 Effective World Hunger Solutions’). Someone needs to move the unlucky and hungry people to the United States for example, or maybe Europe if it is not too expensive. There, the volunteered teams will feed them, educate them and help them start a new job. Everyone must have an opportunity to start over.
Um excuse me, hello people, wake up! There are thousands upon thousands of people starving in our paved streets. We need to start looking into how to make sure that are citizens are fed. First we fix the hunger issue with our citizens, once we have made a HUGE step forward other countries will fall like dominos. America will forever be the GREAT NATION that our founding fathers set out to develop.
Unfortunately, at one point in life innocent and vulnerable children have been or will become victims. Even though hunger and starvation have been thought as an issue related to the less developed nations, United States of America, which is one of the richest nations in the world, faces food in security in some households: Children are the victims as well.

The article written by Michael T. Klare, titled The Coming Hunger Wars: Heat, Drought, Rising Food Costs, and Global Unrest, tries to persuade the reader that the so called “Great Drought” of 2012 has roots in global warming, and “the immediate consequences of the still ongoing Great Drought: dying crops, shrunken harvests, and rising food prices,” and the long term effects including social and political uproars. (Klare 4) Klare uses many techniques in his writing, including ethos, pathos, and logos, which can be very effective when implemented properly. Klare’s audience is widespread because he feels we all play a part in our climate and environment, but he is looking to really hit the climate change non-believers.
Many farmers responded to the price drop by producing even more to compensate for the lower prices so they could keep up with their debts. By the 1930’s, farmland in the great plains to become three times larger than a decade before. Copious amounts of soil has been plowed for so long that the topsoil has practically become dust. These stated events were the reasons many farmers endlessly plowed the great plains over the course of decades with little focus on land management, thus setting the stage for the dust bowl.
Because mothers have more free time to spend with their children, and they have direct effects on raising them. For example as I already said wealthy and rich countries can allocate a special budget to teach or send some hygiene expert over there to teach them some basic personal hygiene. I know that if other countries try to help them by sending some doctor or nurse over there, they can reduce or even cut this problem in next generation of the Congo. (Now in conclusion, I hope that I could inform you all about some possible solution to get them out of poverty or at least reduce their poverty rate.) III.

They also cut back on the amount of food they ate so they could make it last but, the food was such a little amount and wasn 't filled with protein it would leave no trace in their bodies. How is the Malawi famine not like the American Great Depression? The American great depression and the Malawi famine are not like each other because in the advances in technology.
Populations Affected Increasing the access to healthy food in low-income, food desert communities is a healthy step toward reducing the rate of chronic disease in our community. Many of the public health challenges and rising health care costs are directly related to chronic diseases and conditions like cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, low birth weight, obesity and anemia. Bad nutrition and poor food access plays a role in creating these diseases. This problem affects all age ranges and different demographic areas.
