Smart Food securing

Poverty has bred strife and riots.

But, I don't deny unequal society

An obvious con is there in relation between  supply and demand.
Making the situation even worse, someone try to cash in on that(even farmers waiting for a rise in the price of their crops having a large stock of it.It's greed.)

So, all the countries of the world come into action.
For example, Korea made 50 year-round contract of renting land to secure food supply with African countries.

 

Japan left behind by the trend.Probably, because of the strong yen they don't treat it an immediate crisis.

Japanese rate of food destruction is one-thirds.

Some think it's not wast of food.Because they feed it to pigs(To the people who has such an idea pigs are equal to humans...).

Getting back on the track, riots occurring in North Africa and Middle East are bred by the poverty.
One graduated from a university has no jobs lined up.Even worst, food price rose in short term.In Shanghai where I currently lives in food price rose by 30 percent a year.It's way-out.

Though there is no avoiding unequal society, well developed information and distribution system has harmful effect. Such as difficulties to obtain grain.Who eat grain is one(possibly, big) lives in remote area  far from the place of production , not one who starving near by the place.

This is a glaring mistake.

There is impoverished people in the world.How do you feel watching picture below.

Pain with drought-parched land.

Because of the drought, Somalia, one of the Eastern African country, has many people who starved to death.

People rush into Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia to obtain foods and hospitals in the city become busy with treating undernourished children.More than 400,000 children are estimated to dead starved.
Worst drought for 60 years and prolonged civil war made country destabilized and people starved.While more than 3,700,000 people need help, food assistance won't be completed well because of the destabilized society.Volunteers trying to make a monetary donation to fill a need for foods, water and medicine found it difficult to overcome the root cause.
= 2011/8/21  undernourished children shed a tear in refugee camp at Mogadishu, Somalia.

We can't help these people at this point.But we can change the future.Though we can't save the child in the picture above, we could save our descendants.
