What is a food shortage?

A food shortage happens when a region cannot produce enough food for the population. A food shortage is composed of economic, social, and environmental factors. Possible reasons include, but are not limited to, overpopulation, poor government policies, unfair trade rules, and crop failure due to natural disaster, drought, pests, or too much moisture as well as an uneven distribution of natural resources. According to Time magazine, “By 2050, with the global population expected to reach 9.8 billion, our food supplies will be under far greater stress. Demand will be 60% higher than it is today, but climate change, urbanization, and soil degradation will have shrunk the availability of arable land.”

What is the global food crisis?

The global food crisis is the result of countries all over the world facing extreme famine to acute food insecurity. According to the World Food Bank, food prices have raised over 20% since January 2020. The Food and Agriculture Organizations of the United Nations states that over 820 million people do not have enough to eat even though the world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people.
