  • 1. Development Famine & Civil War
  • 2. What is Famine?
    • Famine occurs when there is a severe shortage of food and people cannot find enough nutritious food to eat, resulting in starvation.
    • This often happens in developing countries. Each year they suffer from a ‘Hunger gap’ when they have just planted there crops and have no food reserves left.
  • 3. Then this turns into Famine..
    • • Poverty – when food is in short supply, the cost rises and many people cannot afford to eat
    • • Drought – crops depend on the rain to grow.
    • • Conflict – in conflict situations, people are often driven away from their homes and farms and because of this, they cannot tend to their land.
    • • Poor governance – exporting too much food and not responding to impending famine quickly enough.
    • • Poor agriculture – many countries rely on one crop and do not plant a variety of crops to increase chances of a good harvest.
      • Famine occurs when several of these factors are made worse by governments’ failure to deal with the situation.
  • 4. GOAL
    • GOAL sends an experienced team into the country to deliver food and medical supplies.
    • GOAL a organisation that helps countries in need.
    This team is made up of aid workers who have experience in this area, including medical staff, a nutritionist, a team leader and a logistician, which is someone who sources supplies, such as transport for example, and organises their delivery.

    • Approximately 40% of the world's agricultural land is seriously degraded.
    • In Africa, if current trends of soil degradation continue, the continent might be able to feed just 25% of its population by 2025.
    • Famine strikes African countries the worst.
    • The world’s population is estimated to reach 10 billion by 2050, so the challenge of preventing famine is not going to go away.

    • Leaves country with ‘adult women’ often called the re-bound, increase in birth.
  • 10. Civil War This is a slightly more obvious one.. A civil war is a war between organized groups within a single nation state. They result in large number of casualties.

    • It effects everybody!!
  • 13. Connection..
    • Famine and Civil war, both damage lives and society. They are both making global development worse.. More people dying and homes and buildings been destroyed. Periods of no food, and war happening just around the corner.
  • 14. Global Development?
    • These two make global development inequalities worse because the money has to be provided to people and buildings first, it’s like a break down in the system.. They have to stop developing the country and help to save lives provide money and homes, foods.. And build the Society back up before they can even begin to try and make the country a developing one again.
