Unit 1: The Story of Hunger! ! ! ! ! ! ! Lecture 1 Notes Video 1-2-1 "! 925 million people around the world are chronically hungry —300 million of them are children (that’s 1/6 of the world’s population) "! What’s really annoying? There IS enough food in the world to feed everyone "! More people die from hunger than malaria, AIDs, and TB combined "! 70% of the hungry are women and children To put some things into perspective: A typical US household spends only 10% of their income on food. In cases of extreme poverty (meaning an income of less than $1 a day), 70% of income is spent on food. ! "! We consider 2100 calories per day “nourished” o! w/o this, physical and mental weakness sets in o! children w/o this in the first 1000 days don’t develop properly o! most of these people don’t die from hunger, but from weakness due to hunger o! malnutrition is associated with 53% of deaths in childr en under the age of five ( ~ 11 million every year) Video 1-2-2 "! Why should we care? 1.!There IS enough food 2.!The issue is simply unequal distribution 3.!The solutions are known and available 4.!Politics should NEVER get to decide who lives and who doesn ’t "! Reasons we should all care: 1.!Morality: helping others is the right thing to do 2.!Ethics: we have the ability to create systems to take care of people 3.!Faith: all world religions require their followers to help those with less 4.!Politics: “A hungry child knows no politics” – Ronald Reagan 5.!Economics: you can’t contribute to your society if you don’t have the strength to work "! So how does solving hunger change things? 1.!Promotes education (more kids able to go to school) 2.!Improves overall health and nutrition 3.!Reduces population growth 4.!Supports local markets 5.!Creates peace and stability! ! !!! !!!!!!!###Maslow’s#Hierarchy#of#Needs## ##illustrates#the#fact#that#without#food,#so### ##many#other#things#for#a#basically#happy## ####and#normal#life#are#not#at#all#possible# ! ! “A society should be judged by how it treats its ! most vulnerable.” – Gandhi ! “The moral test of a government is how it treats those who are at the dawn of life, the children; ! those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadow of life, the sick, the ! needy, and the handicapped.” –Hubert Humphrey ! ! ! 2! Video 1-2-3 "! UN 101 o! The United Nations was founded in 1945 after WWI to replace the League of Nations and ensure peace and dialogue between nations o! Consists of 192 member nations working to: 1.!Protect human rights 2.!Protect the environment 3.!Fight disease 4.!Reduce global poverty "! Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) = a set of eight goals to respond to the world’s main development challenges – broken down into 21 quantifiable targets o!
