At the height of the conflict, about one third of the country's people were displaced. The chronic financial crisis became severe and the economy was close to collapsing. Poverty became deeper in the rural areas of the Congo where poor people are now powerless, vulnerable and isolated.
One of the largest issues facing the Global South today is food security. In many cases food security is closely associated with agriculture in a specific area. Due to several issues faced by post war agriculture in Sierra Leone a food security issue has arisen leading to income/consumption poverty. One of the issues facing in Sierra Leone is the number of citizens choosing to work in the mining industry as opposed to working in agriculture. Another issue faced by the agriculture industry in Sierra Leone is the displacement of many farm families due to the civil war and the affect it has on food production.
Pakistan is one of the poorest countries in the world, with many of its citizens living below the poverty line. It is an agro based country thus the revenue that is earned through agriculture is not enough to support the rapidly growing population. In the mids of the 1980’s Pakistan was facing a staggering economy due to the energy crisis all around the world. The main crisis that Pakistan is facing is due to the instability of the government. Largely Pakistan is divided between two Parties Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Party (PMLN), the first party supports social democracy whereas the later supports conservatism.
So, the food gets transported from other countries the food prices increases every day. Many people in the country are poverty that means that they can’t buy enough food to feed themselves because it is too expensive. The second hungriest country in the world is Haiti. Some problem it faces that leads to hunger is 80 percent of people live in poverty. Most of their natural resources were destroyed by hurricanes, floods, and tropical storms.
Natural disasters, such as floods, droughts, tropical storms, tsunamis, and earthquakes, can cause hunger in that they destroy farms, kill livestock and crops, and cause a loss of supplies. Drought, in particular, causes distress for many families worldwide. It is the most common cause of food shortages in the world in that it causes crop failures and loss of livestock. For many poor families, a drought causes them to sell off their livestock in order to make enough money to buy food. Better irrigation plans would help developing countries during droughts and other natural disasters.
Many farmers could not compete with these low prices and lost or sold their farms. These people were not only a burden but also had little to do but cause trouble and contribute to an ever increasing crime rate.” With so many unemployed people in Germany at the time of the Great Depression, they started asking for loan... ... middle of paper ... ... can and have fallen from reasons such as unemployment, political corruption, and fast expansion, all coming from the inside.

Moreover, they are left to their fate. This is why “1 billion children living in poverty (1 in 2 children in the world), 40 million live without adequate shelter, and 400 million have no access to safe water”( “World Poverty and Hunger”). Children in most developing countries are victims to greediness and poor decision making by government officials.

All of low income countries are affected by at least five diseases at the same time. Moreover, low-income countries have a lack of crops, which makes it hard to produce food, and hence there is nothing to sell; causing starvation and an increase of famines. Lots of people depend on good soil, as that is where most of the income in poor countries comes from. The majority of workers in low income countries engage in self-employment or unpaid family work, such as in agriculture, and especially subsistence farming (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2012: 18). Soil is destructed for many reasons such as, deforestation, desertification, soil degradation and so forth.
Crop destruction, pollution, poverty, and lack of education all play a huge role in this problem. Most of Mexico is either farmland or agricultural land so crop destruction leads to less agricultural output which is the primary source of food in this country. Even when there is a supply of food, poverty comes in and makes it even harder for the poor to find a meal. ”Sixty million people, half the Mexican population, live in poverty, and 20 million of them live in ex...
