This paper first relates that global hunger has gained more attention recently due to its worsening impact upon both our national and international population. The paper then defines global hunger and looks at its numerous causes, including climate change, tariffs, international trade barriers, distribution of wealth, agricultural shifts, biofuel production and increasing food prices. Lastly, the paper discusses the solutions to conquer this global hunger dilemma.
From the Paper:"Global Hunger has been an important topic for over 30 years. It involves over 850 million people on a global scale. It is estimated that around 16 million children in developing countries pass away every year from treatable and preventable causes. Hunger and malnutrition account for about sixty percent of these deaths. We are all familiar with the pictures of malnourished children and families in impoverished countries. (4)
"Global hunger goes much deeper than that, though. It involves the senior citizen who has worked their entire life and suddenly cannot afford food due to medical bills. It involves the single mother working two jobs to support her family while deciding whether to buy food or pay for electricity. Hunger is not just a problem of the underprivileged poor countries, but also of the working poor amongst us."
