Intro to Food Security

Ensuring food security is becoming increasingly difficult as the human population continues to increase. Several biological factors make food security a more pressing issue, which will be discussed.

What do we mean when we say food security?

How do you think food security has changed over the last 50 years?

What do you think might have made it harder to secure enough food for eveyone?

The world's population is growing. Today, there are over 7 billion people in the world, but around 100 years ago, there were only 2 billion people in the world. We are struggling to secure food for all these people!

Is the birth rate increasing everywhere in the world?

Humans have also changed their diets. How do you think this has contributed to problems with food security?

Microorganisms have also caused problems for food security. Can you imagine how?

Environmental changes also affect food security. How, do you think?

How do you think changes in agriculture leads to food security problems?

Conflicts in certain areas around the world also affect food security. Why do you think that is?

Food security is becoming more difficult over time. There are many reasons for this, including increasing birth rates, changing diets, new pests and pathogens, environmental changes, increased costs of agriculture and various conflicts around the world.
