Tackling Hunger in Third World countries

-Ecenur Dede

Third world countries opt for dealing with the scarcity of food thereby causing the hunger problem in the country.This is due to the lack of sources in water,economy,food and severe other challenges that bring the hunger problem.In addition to this 98% of people living in developing countries face hunger (Christensen,2016).Therefore it is a huge problem and affects the quality of individuals living in third world countries.The hunger issue even causes people to die in these realm of the world.Thus,.In this article ,it will be elaborated the reasons of hunger in third world countries and the possible solutions will be suggested.In third world countries the issue of hunger stems mainly from poverty .

People are poor enough to sustain their basic needs thereby not being able to supply enough foods for themselves and in their househoulds.In addition to this,there are severe reasons that causes to experience hunger such as weak health, climate changes, and natural disasters.Apart from that Hunger also results from war and displacement, unstable or unavailable markets, and from waste.For instance,In sub-Saharan Africa which is one of the third world countries, people still live in rural places and are dependent on the lands for their livelihood,Decades of underinvestment in agriculture has inevitably inhibited their productivity. More frequent droughts and other weather shocks also affected farmers’ ability to produce enough food for themselves and the society.(Bread,2020).Additionally,Many countries in this region experience high economic growth rates, but they still lack concrete systems, such as administrative, legal, education, and health systems. They also lack roads, electricity, and irrigation..(Bread,2020). These situations make it more difficult for countries, communities, and individuals to bear with hunger and recover from shocks, such as disease outbreaks or droughts.Thus,there are severe reasons that third world countries face the hunger crisis.The solution for hunger can be depicted as boosting agriculture to increase income since mostly those third world countries are dependent on agriculture.In addition to this,Educating people on proper nutrition, sanitation and hygiene so that they keep their health is essential to addressing food insecurity.(USAID,2017).Besides this,empowering women for taking place in the agriculture might help to tackle with the hunger due to contributing the household as

financially .Lastly,The third world countries have issue on hunger due to the fact that they are having poverty ,have lack of sources on water and are usually dealing with the droughts and other natural disasters.Therefore such issues cause them to be exposed to poverty and lack of food thereby having hunger.In order to be able to deal with the hunger,the countries should be more aware of their legislative and administrative entities and should work on trying to boost and strengthen such subcategories in their government.In addition to this,those countries should also work on educating their citizens on nutrition,sanitation and hygiene so that it could have an impact on the hunger crises.
