237.130 Week 10 – Focus Question

The question that best encompasses my focus is: Why is there such an imbalance in food distribution in the world, and how can we change it? The fact is, we have more than enough food to feed the world, but because of waste and uneven distribution of resources, we still have almost 800 million undernourished people on the earth. This number is only going to grow and the communities’ ability to grow their own food is only going to diminish in the face of climate change. Although GM crops are a viable solution to some of our problems, the developed world cannot rely on this, and seriously needs to curb the amount of unnecessary waste we produce, putting a massive strain on hungry in the developing world.
