Hunger is sweeping the planet

61
According to the latest UN report, “The State of Food Security in the World,” about one out of every eight people on the planet is experiencing not just hunger, but chronic hunger. This is not about the fact that someone did not eat yesterday or was deprived of a bowl of soup a week ago, but about the constant malnutrition of 842 by a million people during the period of 2011-2013. UN agencies, however, have noted a slight positive shift: the number of hungry people has decreased by 26 million - from 868 million people in 2010-2012.




October 1 published the annual report “The State of Food Security in the World”. The document was compiled by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Program (WFP). You can read it on FAO website.

According to the report, 842 million people experienced chronic hunger in 2011-2013. This means that people did not receive enough food to lead an active lifestyle. At the same time, the number of hungry people has decreased from 868 million people in 2010-2012. It is also noted that the vast majority of hungry people live in developing regions, and only 15,7 millions - in developed countries. It is indicated that with 1990-1992. to date, the total number of hungry people in developing countries has decreased from 995,5 million to 826,6 million (by 17%).

According to the authors of the report, continued economic growth has led to increased incomes and improved access to food in developing countries. The latter is associated with the growth of productivity of local agriculture, which, in turn, is supported by the growth of public investment and the increasing interest of private investors. In addition, in some countries, the role of remittances of migrants played a role: it allowed, according to the authors of the report, to reduce poverty and improve the diet.

However, the paper notes, Africa (sub-Saharan Africa) did not achieve significant improvements. The region is still characterized by the highest level of malnutrition. Here 24,8% of the population go hungry (every fourth person). Along with Africa, there is no progress in Western Asia. “Modest results” were achieved by South Asia and North Africa.

At the World Food Summit in 1996, an ambitious goal was set - by 2015, to reduce the number of hungry people on the planet by half. This global goal was unattainable. However, 22 countries still reached their goals by the end of 2012.

The report emphasizes that fighting hunger requires the implementation of policies that protect the interests of the poor. Growth strategies should be directed towards the poor. To reduce hunger in poor countries is possible only with constant economic growth, in which all people, without exception, enjoy economic benefits.

Here is a series of facts about hunger given on the FAO website.

Most of the hungry today live in South Asia - 295 million people. In second place - sub-Saharan Africa (223 million). The third is East Asia (167 million).

In order to achieve the goal of the World Food Summit, the number of hungry people in developing countries should be reduced by 2015 by the year 498, which, alas, is unattainable at the current rate of hunger reduction.

Andrey Ivanov ("Free press") talked about hunger with experts.

Said Gafurov, research director of the GDP Research Center, says that food security can only be ensured by abandoning the neoliberal economic model. FAO UN expert calls "too bureaucratic organization." Gafurov also notes: “The neoliberal agenda, which dominates the World Bank and gradually captures the UN, says that everyone is for himself. At a time when the solidarity of all mankind is needed. ” The analyst is confident that the policy of neocolonialism is aimed at providing export supplies of industrial crops or cultures “for the satiated”. The bottom line: instead of rice or corn, people grow cotton or asparagus for the former metropolis.

“The world capitalist system is to blame for the fact that it is unprofitable to grow products. In Moscow in winter a kilo of strawberries costs as much as a beer in a bar. This is the result of the policy of subsidizing agriculture, which the developed countries imposed on themselves and the rest of the world. The United States at the expense of non-equivalent exchange can afford to subsidize their grain producers, so that it is sold cheaper on the world market. And in Africa, instead of growing food for the hungry, they are forced to grow cotton for export. ”


The expert adds:

“When the world was bipolar, and in the West people were afraid of the growing influence of the Soviet Union, the idea dominated the world that it was not profit, but development itself is good. Now the neoliberal model suggests that everyone must fight for their interests. Like, if Western banks beat African peasants, then this is fair and reasonable. To me, this concept seems monstrous. ”


As for Russia, the material further notes the need for a policy in our country to increase the welfare of the poorest. However, in Russia, social policy is aimed more at the rich ...

Doctor of Economics, Head of the Sociology Department of Economics at the Institute of Social and Political Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Igor Bogdanov reports:

“People do not die from hunger. But we can talk about chronic malnutrition, those who do not receive the minimum amount of food recognized in the world. Today in Russia 17 of millions of people live in extreme poverty, of which approximately 7 of millions are in a state of constant malnutrition. It happens that they have no food for weeks at home, and they feed on grass. ”


As noted by Polina Chernitsa ("Voice of Russia"), the UN program to reduce the number of hungry people has been working for almost a quarter of a century, but has not brought tangible results. The poorest countries become dependent on global financial structures, which leads to internal degradation.

Independent expert Alexey Dumoulin says:

“In my opinion, this is a deliberately unresolved problem, because it is easier to manage hungry people. In today's world, many have begun to forget that food is weapon. Created absolutely stable mechanism and scheme. Hunger occurs in a country. The World Bank under the auspices of the UN provides a loan to this country for the purchase of food. And then the corrupt local regime begins to distribute this assistance. Naturally, food is not enough for everyone. But the country's debt thereby increases. After that, it is much easier to talk with these clans about economic and other preferences that are beneficial to those who “order music”. In this case, the one who gives loans. ”


The World Bank is an international organization, but created at the initiative of the United States. Washington has experience in fighting hunger, the analyst continues:

“A classic example is the situation of the beginning of the 20th century, when poor Latin American countries were undernourished, and good American partners helped them. What ended in a huge debt at the end of the 70s. Now 80 countries of the world can not provide themselves with food. This is Africa, not to mention the eternal problem of Afghanistan, Mongolia, North Korea. ”


In recent years, the United States, we will add on our own, regularly boast not only of providing aid to the starving countries of the same Africa, but also of additional help to the same countries. For example, in 2011, Hillary Clinton, the former US Secretary of State, said that Washington would give East Africa another 100 million in aid to fight hunger. This is money for the Horn of Africa.

However, we note that any capitalist assistance quickly shows its wrong side. The fact is that American money is used to buy American food, which is produced with state subsidies to farmers. The resulting products are not distributed at all in Africa, but are sold, albeit at minimal prices. This is the reverse side, the wrong side of American aid. Food dumping is detrimental to that frail agriculture, which is still left by unfortunate Africans who have fallen under the predatory food control of the capitalist hydra. Growing up, producing something under conditions of dumping (on which local elites thrive, profiting from the resale of cheap “help”) becomes extremely unprofitable. Instead of creating, the capitalist system, or rather, its neoliberal variety, frankly destroys. Destruction in the postmodern language is called “food aid”, so that from the outside everything looks noble. This is not a paradox, it is a substitution of concepts practiced in the "open" market. Under the guise of "fighting hunger", the United States supports its manufacturer, not forgetting the formation of a positive image in the world through the press.

Tens of thousands of people die of hunger every day in the world, and in many respects it is the result of the capitalist struggle against hunger.

According to Friedrich Schubeck, Director of the Department "Caritas" in St. Pölten (Austria), daily 7 thousands of children die of starvation. Every 12 seconds of starvation, one child dies on the planet.

As for the UN, the 16 of October, on World Food Day, Secretary General of the international organization Ban Ki-moon recognizedthat the problem of hunger is much more serious. According to him, two billion people suffer from “hidden starvation”. It was about malnutrition. The general secretary spoke of poor-quality nutrition.

"Poor nutrition also means that about 1,4 billion people are overweight, and about one third of this number suffer from obesity and are at risk for diseases of the cardiovascular system, diabetes and other health problems."


And how to solve the problem? The Secretary General believes that the key to ensuring the right of everyone to food is to develop new approaches and policies, increase production, processing and delivery of agricultural products to consumers, etc. In general, a familiar capitalist tale about a white bull. Does the United States really need to deliver even more “agricultural products” to Africa? ..

      Enough to read the capital of Marx

      Don’t read this garbage! Take better care of the fate of Marx himself. An idealist whose ideas have long been in the dustbin of history. He spent a hard life in exile and poverty. Marx did not work, he and his wife were struggling for odd jobs from writing articles and selling things from the dowry of Jenny (wife), and most often was just a parasite of Engels, who kept him and his wife all his life. Frederick was very capable of learning languages ​​(besides German and English, he knew Italian, Spanish, Danish, spoke in Polish, Romanian, Russian, not to mention Greek and Latin). Having not received a systematic higher education, he became one of the most educated young people in Europe and declared himself as a talented publicist, poet, enlightener. Engels loved a beautiful life: wine, women and free love. He was a member of prestigious clubs, a card player and an indispensable participant in the fun of the English aristocrats - fox hunting.
      The tall, athletic, cheerful, blue-eyed Aryan, the son of a wealthy textile manufacturer, kept a sullen Jew all his life.
      Marx's wife borrowed money, put clothes and even linen in a pawnshop, wrote endless letters to relatives and friends with a plea for help. They lived so poorly that they ate potatoes for weeks, they froze, and if someone was sick, there was nothing to pay the doctor for medicines. Of the seven children in these conditions, only three survived (daughters of Jenny, Laura and Eleanor). When one of the daughters died, they did not even have the means to buy a coffin to bury the girl. The family was ill with cholera, Zhenny was ill with smallpox and was close to death, and Karl was constantly tormented by purulent abscesses. In addition, he went into all serious pains - stormy novels flashed one after another. It was with a wealthy landowner, Italian Frau Tenge, or even with her young niece Antoinette Philips (daughter of the founder of PHILIPS), who was nineteen years younger than uncle. A young housekeeper flew from him. Marx was illegitimate son and paid for it, Engels paid for it stay there and everyone tried to forget this episode. Only on his deathbed did Frederick admit that the child was not from him, but from Marx. Karl never saw or recognized his son. Jenny became more depressed and died at the age of 66, suffering from a painful illness. Marx himself died a year later, and the daughters of Marx died tragically: one of them died after the birth of a fifth child, two committed suicide. But at the end of the XNUMXth century, Marxism itself died too ...

    The fact is that American food is purchased with American money, which is produced with state subsidies from farmers. The resulting products are not distributed at all in Africa, but are sold - albeit at the lowest prices.

    In addition to this, deducted earlier.
    In Europe and the United States raise money for food. help to the starving. In Africa, land is taken on preferential terms (help is provided), penny workers are hired, food is grown and (!) Exported and sold in Europe and the United States. In the press, what good fellows they have provided prod. help in your pocket - double profit. Be careful!

    If desired, it is not difficult to feed the whole world, the only question is what. A friend of mine grew spirulina (such an alga with 90% protein, growing almost like manure). To grow it, you need heat, water and some, easily accessible mineral islands. It will not be food, but coarse and not tasty food. The only problem is that it is not profitable for corporations - that means this will not happen.

    HUMANITARIAN PACKAGE, DROPPED FROM THE PLANE, DESTROYED THE HOUSE AND KILLED TWO AFGHANIS
    29.11.2001


    The US Air Force continues to carry out a humanitarian action in Afghanistan along with the bombing. Last night, this led to tragedy. A humanitarian aid package dropped from an airplane fell on the roof of a residential building, broke through the ceilings, and brought down the roof. Under the rubble killed two civilians - a woman and a child.

    According to Western news agencies, with reference to correspondents working at the scene, the humanitarian aid package contained a supply of items that one family needed to survive the winter — sets of warm clothes, blankets, and groceries. Unfortunately, these items caused death.

    The Pentagon admitted responsibility for this sad incident.

    These data certainly need to be considered. And with all pity for starving Africa, we must first think about our own people. In Ukraine, consider that almost all pensioners do not have enough money for food. Not to mention quality products. What about the students? But just youth? After all, there was a period when they asked for the army precisely because there was nothing at home. And there is nowhere to earn money either. They at least fed in the army. Now they are not taking the army, either. it is being reduced. In order to feed the people, it is necessary to fundamentally change social policies within the country. But we have this .... oh and ah. And then there is Africa!

    There are no uncontrolled processes in the world. If somewhere, something is wrong, then someone is profitable.

    So I'm wondering why the "wild tribes" living isolated from civilization on the islands for more than one millennium have enough food and the population is stable?

    In my opinion, the whole point is that many centuries ago the unfair concept of development was imposed on the world, according to which we all live to this day - divide, bleed and conquer. It must be replaced by a fair one - unite, prosper and hello.

    And Russia has such a concept, which is set forth in the book "Dead Water", which is reflected in the party's program - http://www.kpe.ru/partiya/programma/3622-programm

Yes, despite what is happening in Africa and Asia, where children swell with hunger, do not know how to read and write, live in huts without doors, where wild animals see a person primarily as a piece of meat, we have a piece of bread on the table and legs in the warmth, which sometimes in the whole life of some kind of bear or wolf have been seen a couple of times and then in the zoo!

      Why should we look at them? Perhaps, we will also equal them? Who is to blame for them that they ate each other for centuries, did not invent or create anything? Why look at the worst? To get down to their level? Apparently, this is someone I really want to. So many lands are now empty! And before everything was sown. That is why food is becoming more expensive. At best, but the USSR did not feed anyone. And only from its own land. And our agriculture was ruined and products are imported from the West, like Africa. It's a shame! Look, Belarusians in what conditions make wonderful harvests. Everything is their own! But their climate is more restive than in Russia and even more so in Ukraine. And nothing is profitable. We would have a "bam" in the presidency, and there would be full food independence.

    Detroit can provide the answer. while whites were in power in the city, it was a city of motors, as soon as the blacks seized power, a polar fox came to the city. Negroes, apparently at the level of DNA, cannot create anything, only reproduce at the speed of rabbits (you see the process itself is very pleasant) and destroy and plunder everything created by "snowballs".

    I join the opinion of the young "overgrown" of Asian and African "rabbits", I believe that
    the task of Western "funds" is mass murder, artificial famine (for example, the destruction of the man-made river Gaddafi), the subsequent plundering of "humanitarian" aid ... It is done so that people cannot do without GMOs, any synthesized substitutes and other "chemistry".
    PS I remember how northern Rhodesia and South Africa flourished when the whites were in power. These countries led a fairly independent policy. And the coming of the black majority to power took place at the very moment when the Soviet Union collapsed. Now Zimbabwe has become synonymous with poverty, and South Africa has become a colony of Anglo-American corporations.

    The author, as it were, contradicts himself. According to the author, humanitarian aid in the form of food leads to the following:
    It is extremely unprofitable to grow, produce something under dumping conditions (on which local elites also flourish and profit from the resale of cheap “help”).

    But there is not enough food and people are starving ... How can this be understood? If the demand for food is large and humanitarian, it is not covered, then how can agriculture be unprofitable? I understand that the author fiercely hates all the capitalist coves feeding Africa for free, but why force the logic and try to pull his hatred on facts?
    How can agriculture in Africa be unprofitable? There is enough water, there is no winter, the land is rich ...

              Africa holds huge groundwater reserves. The legendary arid African continent has huge reserves of fresh water in the underground horizons ... Under Libya, Algeria and Chad, groundwater has accumulated that could cover the territory of these countries with an 75 meter layer ...

If they themselves can’t produce anything, then they will have to take it from someone .. Until they take it from more lean neighbors, but there not eternal. In general, either they will eventually eat each other, or, the rest of the world will cry from them ... hi

    It is not genes but white who are to blame for the poverty of Asians and Blacks. European colonizers, since the 15th century, have grossly violated the natural development of the peoples of Asia, Africa, and America. In one Cuba, 50 ml were cut out over 2 years. Indians. Western Europe sucked out all the juices from the colonies, then threw it one on one with the problems. Now a process of historical retaliation is taking place. Soon barbarians of Africa, Asia and America will lower Europe and the USA. In France it will be like in Algeria, in the USA like in Mexico, etc.

        And Japan, was there at least something that seduced the colonialists? Besides rice, rice paper, varnished armor, and a tradition that no one understood at all?
        Plus, a country governed by a tough central government with a people ready to make any sacrifices for the sake of the Empire?
        this is not a bunch of diverse tribes in Africa, which were easy to poison against each other and having considerable profit from it. at least sometimes teach history, not compulsions and other rubbish ...

    UN agencies note, however, a small positive shift: the number of starving people fell by 26 million - from 868 million people in 2010-2012.
    well, yes, it has decreased ... they just starved to death.
    At the World Food Summit in 1996, an ambitious goal was set - by 2015, to halve the number of hungry people on the planet.
    yes, yes ... we also heard about the "golden billion" and vaccinations, after which women cannot give birth, and men do not "want"
    Washington has experience in fighting hunger
    awesome experience ... more than 30 million Americans get food stamps, fool for a minute, every tenth americos. belay
    But we can talk about chronic malnutrition, those who do not receive the minimum amount of nutrition recognized in the world. Today in Russia 17 million people live in extreme poverty, of which approximately 7 million are in a constant state of malnutrition. It happens that they don’t have food in their house for weeks, and they eat pasture. ”
    I would like to know - by whom is it recognized? and what, is this the minimum amount of nutrition? Is it 150g of meat, or 2 kg of potatoes, or maybe 3 kg of bananas? request and I would like - visually, to look at one of the 7 million Russians whose WEEKS belay there is no food in the house.
    And how to solve the problem?
    the problem is solved simply ... tongue no need to "help" nature is our mother laughing - it will "settle" everything itself wink

    They are too much accustomed to the fact that they are given handouts from various missions, and they simply "live" without trying to change anything in the direction of improving their lives, with such a huge number of wild animals they also manage to starve, and dictators only warm their pockets on this - rejoicing in gratuitous work in various extractive industries.

      Many herbivores wild animals in Africa are not edible, but those that can be eaten mainly in National Parks. It’s easier to fill up a rhino or a leopard for sale, but for poachers there are strict laws, you can lose your life yourself.

      5 centuries in slavery among Europeans and not accustomed to this.
      It was for these 5 centuries that they lagged behind in development, the Europeans behaved in the same way in the 15-16 centuries, the difference is that blacks have enough Kalashnikovs and they know the price of such things as "blood diamonds".

        It was during these 5 centuries that they lagged behind in development,

        The Spaniards were enslaved by the Arabs for 800 years, so they lagged behind in development from the Arabs? Negroes lagged behind in development not by 500, but by 200 years! This dead end branch in the development of mankind. They have no development prospects.

    More than half a century has passed since almost all "black" African countries gained independence and not one one of them never became rich and prosperous ...
    Mines, factories, roads, airports and many other things left behind the "white invaders-colonizers" but the negroes do not surrender - no matter how they did it and do not do it !!! :))))) But they dance so beautifully ...

    There was a gorgeous book "The Last Secrets of Old Africa" ​​by Lawrence Green - an Englishman who lived there all his life and traveled all over Africa ... I was struck by the phrase about the Zulus and their war with the British - close to the text: "They fearlessly went to machine guns and died thousands for their sacred right not to do anything. "There seems to be an interesting opinion of blacks about gorillas - they thought that gorillas are very smart blacks who specifically refuse to talk so that they are not forced to work ... Very interesting details of the racial psychological portrait :)
