African hunger

By: Annabelle Hanitz

Imagine living in a country with poverty, hunger, aids, and many other issues, living as if you don't know weather your family will get what they need to survive, have enough food, water, & the proper health care. This affects everyone one in Africa, the children, woman, and 10 million other people. It is African agriculture itself that is in crisis, and according to the International Food Policy Research Institute, this has left 200 million people malnourished.


Africa faces serious environmental challenges, including erosion, desertification, deforestation, and most importantly drought and water shortages, which have increased poverty and hunger by reducing agricultural production and people's incomes. Many of these challenges have been caused by humans; the environment can be said to be overexploited.Low life expectancy, less workers to less out put, increase poverty Level.
