Ending world hunger and improving food security in developing nations may be an important part of any efforts that hope to produce world peace, experts say. The warnings underscore the importance of treating individuals of different ethnicities and nationalities the same as family and friends.
Franz Fischler, who is a candidate for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, told Reuters Africa that volatility in food prices in recent years have cause instability in a number of growing economies. This has the potential to jeopardize peace in these regions.
"Food security is becoming more and more also an issue of national security," Fishler told the news source.
The Food and Agriculture Organization works to alleviate hunger in many poorer regions of the world and leads efforts to improve the quality of life of subsistence farmers, many of whom struggle to put enough food on their families' plates.
Hunger is a problem that the world is capable of solving. Ilchi Lee advocates treating every citizen of the Earth with love and respect while moving past the ethnic, cultural and national differences that divide people. Doing so could lead to a greater sharing of resources and fewer threats to peace.
