Feeding the World—What possible role could geography play?
This week you learned that there is, in fact, enough food available to feed everyone in entire world every day. However, we can clearly see that feeding people—or more often than not—getting the food to where people live, is a huge problem. The problem is a lot more complex that it at first appears.
Consider the following in your responses:
Look at the community you live in. If food became inaccessible to your community, how would that affect your day-to-day life and that of your community?
Historically, food has always been grown near or around population centers, where it could be protected (mostly) and easily transported into the towns in the days when refrigeration and mechanized transportation did not exist. What role does logistics play in modern times in getting food to where it is needed? What complications exist?
What role does geography play in this story? For example, consider a country like Nepal, which is about 200 miles wide, yet the altitude goes from a few hundred feet about sea level to over 18,000 feet in that 200-mile stretch.
What role does latitude play in countries being able to grow food or their locations? Consider things like being located along a river, ocean, landlocked, or whether a country is located in a closer or farther from the equator.
