Assignment 2: Analysis of Food Security
The members of the United Nations found great value in the analysis you provided on the effects of global warming that results from population growth. They are now asking you to write an additional analysis to include further issues related to population growth. Here is the issue they have asked you to consider:
The member states of the United Nations seek to build food systems that can provide global food security which will feed everyone, everywhere, every day by improving food quality through the promotion of effective and nutritional agricultural practices. The crucial issue is not the lack of food in the world but the access to that food. In many developing countries, food shortages are due to governmental control over food distribution. These governments maintain control of the population and their power by limiting access to nutritious food to certain groups. In this practice, they thereby “weaponize” food.
Your second project as a consultant for the United Nations is to develop an analysis that addresses three issues related to global food insecurity caused by global population growth and poverty and to explore these issues in a developing country of your choosing.
The UN has given you the following guidelines.
The UN has asked that your paper contain three sections. Each section should be one page (or approximately 300 words) in length and answer specific questions, identified in the outline below. It also asks that you use examples from your developing country when answering the questions.
Provide an introduction of half a page minimum that addresses points a-e below.
Section I. Background
Section II. Technologies That Can Reduce Hunger and Improve Food Security
Section III. Specific Factors in Chosen Developing Country
