What are the major challenges facing Africa today?
The challenges facing Africa are daunting. Africa has the highest proportion of its people in extreme poverty and is not on target to meet any of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agreed at the United Nations in 2000. The MDGs are: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger Globally, the number of people living in extreme poverty is falling, but there are large variations in progress between regions. Asia is making good progress, but there is little movement elsewhere and sub-Saharan Africa is going backwards.The world already produces enough food, but the key to eradicating hunger is to ensure that ordinary people in the developing world can get access to it and that it’s affordable. Poverty is the principal cause of hunger.
I see that man people are starving in africa and i feel that they should not be going through this. Asia is making good progress, but there is little movement elsewhere and sub-Saharan Africa is going backwards so why cant we do something about it
The World Bank says soaring food prices have already pushed millions more people into extreme poverty this year.
Tan Wai Hoe's insight:
i can see that this year the food pricing has been rising causing many people to starve. this is not only happening in India alone it is happening in the whole world. I think that we could help by donating food to some other country who cannot afford food to keep them alive. i wonder if the price did not go up will they be able buy food
i see that food prices have gone up in USA but this doesnt only happen in USA , this also is happening in asia and even some poorer countries like india this poorer countries cannot afford to buy food for their people and their people will starve and may also die
Oxfam said today that the world's 100 richest people could easily afford to end the hunger, thirst and basic illness of every person of Earth.
Tan Wai Hoe's insight:
i can see that oxfam had shown that the world's 100 richest people could easily afford to end the hunger, thirst and basic illness of every person of Earth so why do they still do not want to help the poor so that they can be normal
"Federal resources in the short- and medium-term will be much scarcer, and it will be important to work together to maximize available resources for affordable housing and targeted homelessness programs and to increase coordination with mainstream programs like TANF, SSI, Medicaid, and SNAP (formerly food stamps)."
i can see that our people have noticed this poverty of people around us and they had started to help this group of people by giving them a home so that they will not be homeless. I think that we also have to give our best to help them as they are also human being. I wonder why there are still people who are so selfish and do not want to help
