Can mobile phones help to improve food security?

Can mobile phones help to improve food security? | Walford IB HL Extension Topic Global Interactions | Scoop.it
Around three-fourths of the world’s poorest people live in rural areas. The rural poor, and their very specific needs, must therefore be at the centre of any attempt to tackle global poverty and the issue of food security.

Globalisation can be defined in many ways but in a very basic description it is seen as 'individuals, groups and nations, becoming ever more interdependent on one another' Giddens (2009; 126). Great overview of the issues related to Globalisation. Could be a discussion article for students

This is a picture of our world and the real way that we are connected in real time from Facebook. It's amazing! Share this everywhere!

Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 12:23 PM

This map amazes me because of just how big Facebook has become after starting as a small site for college kids in the U.S. to connect on.  Now it is one of the largest contributing factors to globalization as it allows people from various continents to connect to others with a simple Internet connection.  It has helped people of different cultures come together and as we saw in class, it helps spread word of different political happenings that regular news media tries to hide from us.  

It's also really interesting to see how China is completely off the grid and so is central and Saharan Africa because in terms of modern day globalization, they are not areas that participate in many global affairs and with the prominence Facebook holds in today's world, the parts of the world that are missing are much stranger to us in cultural terms.
