Assignment 2 – Poverty and Food Security (110 points)
The members of the United Nations appreciated the content you provided on population growth. Now they are asking you to expand the white paper (a synonym for analysis that is used mostly by diplomats) to include global food security as it relates to population growth and poverty. Read the assessment below and provide an assessment based on the questions below.
The issue is not the lack of food in the world, but the access to food. Simply put, food is not getting to where it needs in time. In developing countries, the food shortage is due to governmental control over food. These governments maintain their control and preference over certain groups by limiting access of nutritious food to certain groups, thereby weaponizing food.
In this second part of your white paper, research the impact of poverty on global food security and the technology available to potentially remedy this situation. Write a minimum of four pages assessing the impact, citing at least five credible sources in your research. Refer specifically to the role these issues have had in the developing country of your choice. In this assessment, please include:
- A cover page with your name, title of the course, date, and the name of your instructor.
- A one-half page introduction.
- A middle section that is numbered and divided into three one-page sections. Each of these sections should answer one of the following questions:
- What is food insecurity and what role does population growth play in it?
- What factors specifically interrupt the flow of food from the source to the people in the developing country you selected?
- What forms of technology can be used to reduce hunger and improve food security?Explain how these technical solutions can do that.
- A one-half page conclusion.
- This makes a total of at least four pages for the assignment.
- Cite a minimum of five credible sources excluding Wikipedia, dictionaries, and encyclopedias for your assessment.
- For a brief list of resources for this assignment, please see the end of the course guide.
