4 Major Factors Which Could Lead to A Global Food Crisis

In the world today there are approximately 795 million people who don’t have enough to eat. That’s one out of every nine people alive. The places that are worst effected are developing countries in Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin American and the Caribbean. This figure is only set to increase with a rise in population predicted until at least 2050.

At the moment, the problem doesn’t lie in the amount of food the world produces as a whole but rather in the distribution of food. Taking into account the amount of calories produced by crops globally we should actually have an excess of 1 quadrillion (or 1 million billion) calories worldwide. If current trends continue, this won’t be the case by 2050 and the world will see levels of hunger and malnutrition in much greater quantities than we do now
