Food and population

Current and future effect on global populationPoverty vulnerability and economic insecurities are some of the direct risks to health, especially in developing countries. Warming oceans and a changing climate are resulting in an increase in infectious diseases.
Falling water tables China, India, and the United States collectively produce half of the world’s grain. They are all under the threat of falling water tables. The question is not whether water shortages will affect their future harvests, but rather when will it do so.

We are facing extreme weather (drought and floods) patterns, the nutritional content of food for human consumption is decreasing. Our environment, ecosystems, and biodiversity is in great danger, and so are medicinal plants.
Electrification of rural communities has reached centre-stage for contributing to poverty alleviation, stimulating economic activities in rural areas, fuelling industrial production and transportation as well as expanding rural development, protecting good health whilst promoting sustainability and environmental quality.
