World hunger is one of the most important issues that need to be combatted as soon as possible; otherwise, the next generation will be the primary victims. Even though we succeeded in cutting the number of people living in malnutrition by half in 15 years, there is a long way to go to reach the 2030 goal which is no human being suffering from famine or malnutrition whatsoever.
Lack of food security and sufficient nourishment could result in a huge number of stunted and shrivelled children and reduce work productivity in adults, especially in African and South Asian countries. The world does produce enough food for everyone literally. However, the actual availability of food and insufficient income to acquire nourishing food are the two most important issues in hard up places. One proposed solution is to generate a sustainable agriculture system that is robust enough to feed generation after generation. Because impoverished lands often have harsh weather and many conflicts, they require lots of time to develop, a massive budget, and agreements between countries to improve their living standards. Surely, equal accessibility to health services and a comfortable existence are the best achievements ever contrived by humanity that ought to be appreciated by each and every one of us. Developed countries must step up to the plate and be more proactive in research to develop a climate adaptable agriculture system that adopts new technology to help famished peoples and spread its use through education.
