Is UN’s goal of zero world hunger by 2030 moving out of reach? | DW News

Back to menu

12 jul. 2021

Hunger remains one of humanity’s greatest challenges. The target is to achieve zero world hunger by 2030. That’s the United Nations’ goal. But the world is a long way from achieving that. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the number of people without enough to eat is rising — in 2020, more than 750 million people went hungry – maybe as many as 811 million. That’s around one tenth of the global population. The worst hit regions are Asia, with 418 million, and Africa with 282 million. Researchers believe the situation in Africa has dramatically worsened.

That goal was always out of reach. Drought isn’t the problem, government mismanagement is the problem. These are resource and skill rich countries that are repressed by their leaders and lack of infrastructure. A simple pipe carrying water or a desalination plant would solve these drought issues, instead we send food and water in plastic packaging and expect them to not rely on us again the very next year despite getting nothing done systemically.

And billionaires are literally wasting huge sums in space, something they are not so sure about. 😭

it’s really f*ed up that so many people are still substistence farming like this and starving if a harvest fails.

About a billion people are in hunger???? That’s sad isn’t it sniffs screen slowly

UN’s SDG’s ZERO HUNGER by 2030 is a Delusion of Grandeur!

Every 2 years the world spends enough on warfare to end poverty worldwide permanently. Twisted priorities.

Follow the money. If spent correctly it would have made a bigger impact on people not starving… But the UN is a business and can be corrupted.

2 The Racial Wealth Gap? It All Comes Down to Black Banks | Amanpour and Company

Back to menu

Data show that the median white family has 10 times more wealth than the average Black family, a fact grimly familiar to law professor Mehrsa Baradaran. In her award-winning book, “The Color of Money: Black Banks and the Racial Wealth Gap,” she examines how Black communities have been systemically shut out of the banking system – a big brick in the wall of structural racism. Michel Martin speaks with Baradaran about these issues even before the current crises sweeping America. This conversation shows just how prescient her warnings are.

Originally aired on July 15, 2020.

7 – 15m people in Ethiopia will need food aid by 2016 – BBC News

Back to menu

10 nov. 2015

The United Nations has warned that more than 15 million people in Ethiopia will be in need of food aid by the beginning of 2016 because of a severe drought. A lack of rain has meant that crop yields in the worst-affected areas are down by 90% this year.
 
The Ethiopian government has set aside nearly £130m to deal with the crisis but the UN says a further £330m is needed.
 
Clive Myrie reports from Kobo in northern Ethiopia.
 
Shibby Marley
God please help these people make it rain
phoenixman8569
when ever a drought  hits Ethiopia it always seems to be the same group of people starving, the nomadic like desert dweller’s and small farmers in the middle of nowhere. The people in big Ethiopian cities are hardly fazed by the water and food shortage, so it sounds like living a nomad existence in Ethiopia can lead to starvation and death during crisis situations.

They are really lucky. Where I live we had a hose pipe ban.

I used to admire the BBC when I was growing up, catching news on SW radio. I gave up on it a long time ago. Documentary production used to be ok. BBC now is a shallow sensationalist news service that seems to be run by directionless entitled people of sheltered upbringing, who must by any means find anything shocking to feel something. BBC cannot hold a mirror to DW TV, which I have been following regularly.

8 Why Are People Starving In Booming Ethiopia?

Back to menu

25 mei 2016

Endless Famine (2008): Despite economic growth and development in Ethiopia people are still dying of malnutrition in Ethiopia.
 

In the 80s the West was shocked by images of Ethiopia’s starving children and aid poured in from across the world. Now Ethiopia’s economy is booming. But once again babies are dying of malnutrition. What went wrong?

In Ethiopia’s capital Addis Abbaba the signs of new wealth are everywhere. Glass sky-rise blocks dwarf traditional stone settlements, and with daybreak hundreds of builders arrive at the city’s construction sites. But on the outskirts is a very different scene. A long queue is forming here. Word has spread that cheap, government-subsidised food will be sold here. We ask one man if he has trouble feeding himself. ‘Yes’, he says, ‘because of the Food Shortage’. ‘Just very recently we hit the worst’, local woman Valerie Browning tells us. But the Developed World, the Ethiopian government and even many aid agencies want Ethiopia to be a success story. That means the real story often goes untold. At the breadline government security arrives and forces us to leave. This happens every day to news crews in Ethiopia. ‘The government don’t want to say that there is another side of the story’, explains Former Ethiopian MP Gebru Asrat. ‘The majority of the population do live in dire poverty. And in Ethiopia millions are getting poorer every year’.

This is evil. That is why I never donate to charities. The producer of this video did rigth to visit them and see for himself.
Ivan Kinsman
Unless land improvement programmes go hand in hand with family planning and education programmes, then malnutrition will continue to exist in countries like Ethiopia.
Allen Franklin
In my travels around the world Ive saw same thing many times. The large charities that receive all the money very rarely get the money directly to the people its meant for. Would be nice if someone on the ground such as Valerie could communicate ways to send money or adopt a family direct. You send a world aide type charity 100 bucks and the family is lucky to get 1 dollar from it. Would be great to know how to give direct.
Sassy
Wow! World Vision is a cheat! Don’t give your money to organizations. Do what I do, find a person that is worthy of help and give to them directly…..
Katrina Perez
Wow – I was always wondering about this. I wanted to sponsor a child, I was always concerned they wouldn’t see the money. (That was 30 years ago).
Justartsndstuff
we struggled so much with our one child that it got accepted for world Vision…let’s have 6 more.
Brian Richards
As I remember, amaranth, millet and quinoa grow under very dry conditions. Also, once certain trees are established, such as avocado, they can survive and at least produce a small amount of fruit without a lot of water. My banana plants here in California, which receive no added water at all, and survive on what winter rains bring, still produce bananas. Such might be the case with plantains also. Food donations are a stop gap measure. Teach people how to farm, and introduce them to different crops so they can feel some independence. My best to the people of Ethiopia

9 The Tragic Cost of Progress in Ethiopia

28 okt. 2013

The truth behind Ethiopia’s economic miracle

Ethiopia’s huge agricultural output has brought about an economic miracle for the nation. But inhabitants are being pushed out of their native land by foreign investors and have no share in the profits.

“When investors showed up we were told to pack up our things and go to the villages”, says Moot. Like thousands of other farmers he’s been relocated to an artificial village to make space for new foreign agricultural investments. The promise of social services, including schools and clinics, has not been fulfilled and fear of arrest paralyses the farmers. Government spokesmen defend the policy, arguing that “our population is spread all across the territory. We can’t give them care until they are grouped together”. But with Africa’s most fertile land being rented well below international market price and little need for labour in the highly industrialised farmlands, traditional farmers are struggling for survival.

Across the globe, global commercial demand for arable land is on the rise. One of the most profitable new agricultural hotspots is Ethiopia. [Online until: February 4, 2019]
Part 2: https://youtu.be/Igk5NHH-qJ0

Farmland – the new green gold. In the hopes of huge export revenues, the Ethiopian government is leasing millions of hectares of land to foreign investors. But there’s a dark side to this dream of prosperity.

The results are massive forced evictions, the destruction of smallholdings, state repression, and a vicious spiral of violence in light of environmental devastation. Global institutions like the EU, World Bank and DFID are contributing to this disaster with billions of dollars in development money every year. Whoever gets in their way is met with severe consequences. The young Ethiopian environmental activist Argaw learned that the hard way when he tried to raise awareness for his country’s plight.

Are transnational land investments bolstering the economy or selling out the country? While some hope for financial gains and development, others are losing their very livelihood. In pursuit of the story, we meet investors, bureaucrats, persecuted journalists, struggling environmentalists and farmers who have been evicted from their land. Swedish director Joakim Demmer’s shocking real-life thriller ‘Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas’ starts in apparently remote corners of Ethiopia and leads through global financial centers, right to our dining tables.
