Delay in Decision Could Arouse World Food Shortage
A newest report submitted by the International Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change is urging government and many international concerned authorities to immediately start taking action if they do not want to face any world food shortage.
The recent report on global food security was presented last night during a scientific conference that was held in London. The report has clearly warned international leaders, farmers and food companies to take immediate action regarding food security else be prepared to face irrevocably weak and inadequate agricultural production by the year 2050.
The experts have urged the concerned people to introduce a seismic shift in procedures that are run during food production, its distribution and all the related consumption systems. Along with the above changes, the professionals also said that the government must be ready to invest a big financial investment in the agricultural sector, farmers must be learnt of the research innovations timely and must fast adopt them for better production, farmers must be thoroughly educated to follow intensified farming practices, inefficient multi-billion general farm subsidies that are presently being offered by developed countries like US and Europe must be improved, and cutbacks in massive household food waste.
To tackle the situation now onwards, the commission's chairman, Sir John Beddington, chief scientific adviser to the British government, has recently urged government to introduce a decisive policy action for the better maintenance of the food production.
“The delays in serious commitment and action will allow hunger to prevail and probably intensify,” Sir John said in London last night. “And environmental damage could be irreparable, compromising the world's capacity to produce adequate food in the future,” he added.
Officials have also suggested the consumers to eat more vegetables and rich diet food than the red meat or the other livestock-based foods.
