Conflict, extreme weather, natural disasters and poverty. Ending hunger is the greatest challenge of our time, but together it’s solvable.
The world produces enough food to feed everyone on the planet. Ending hunger isn’t a question of supply. Zero hunger is achievable, but there’s still a long way to go. Below are the four main drivers of hunger in our world today.
Conflict is the #1 driver of hunger, and it is entirely man-made. It destroys economies and infrastructure, making it impossible for people to find or afford food.
Extreme weather like droughts or flooding makes growing food harder every year, especially for small-scale farmers who lack the technology and tools to adapt.
Earthquakes and hurricanes can destroy entire communities, farms and infrastructure, leaving families homeless and starving.
People who live below the global poverty line often can’t afford the nutritious food their families need, limiting their children’s early physical and educational development.
Hunger and malnutrition are part of an ongoing cycle, as both a cause and effect of poverty and inequality.
