International Food Insecurity
Food insecurity is defined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as “a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.” Recently, as reported in 2016, approximately 795 million people in the world were undernourished. Of these people, 780 million live in developing nations. This alarming statistic clearly illustrates the urgency of addressing this pressing issue. This widespread food scarcity leaves many people around the globe with insufficient nutrition, food, and energy. Even countries that have an abundance of food still struggle with this epidemic of food insecurity. Delegates must create a comprehensive plan to resolve this issue, while also being able to combat all obstacles set before them.
