It is estimated that over one billion people suffer from malnourishment due to lack of available food. This, obviously, is a major humanitarian and moral failing. It is also politically perilous and a drag on the health of world financial systems. "Food security", which the United Nations defines as "a state when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food..." has not been achieved. Is it possible? This audiobook, produced by iMinds and narrated by Emily Sophie Knapp, will address the issues surrounding world hunger and the steps being taken to alleviate the suffering.
Learn about Food Security with iMinds Money's insightful fast knowledge series. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation defines Food Security as a state when “all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life”. Economic, political and environmental factors affect food security from the national level to the individual. Food security is not only an issue for poverty stricken nations, but also for urbanised, developed nations. In 1996, world leaders met at the Rome World Food Summit to affirm a commitment to eradicating hunger and halving the amount of undernourished people by the year 2015. At that time there were roughly 800 million undernourished people worldwide. The current estimate from 2009 is 1.09 billion, though this amount is partly due to dramatic increases over the last 3 years because of rises in food prices and the Global Financial Crisis.iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.
