Position summary: Global hunger


Name of Delegate: Pitchaya Petch Areekarnlert
Issue: What can we do (as a united faction) to eradicate global hunger?
Country Assigned: France
1. What is the current status of the 'issue' in your country?
More than 854 million people in the world go hungry. In developing countries,
nearly 16 million children die every year from preventable and treatable causes.
Sixty percent of these deaths are from hunger and malnutrition. Poverty is one of
the conditions in which a person lacks the essentials for a minimum standard of
life. Poverty is hunger.
Even though France is the developed country, some of them face the
hunger which mainly cause from poverty. In 1997, France was facing its highest
rates of poverty as unemployment climbs to record levels. Commonly, when
people didnt have money they didnt have capability to pay for food as well. In
this case, the hungers in France might not be that severe as those hungers in
some countries in Africa zone but, if there is a problem we need to find solutions
and make the situation be better.
Also, the immigration problems are part of the hunger problems. In the
cities with large immigrant populations, like those along the southern rim of
France, recorded higher rates of hunger, than those with smaller numbers of new
arrivals. Higher rent prices and the amount of state-subsidized housing, were
also factors in pushing hunger rates up and down in certain towns.
According to the current news, Damning Report Accuses Frances Largest
Banks of 'Profiting from Hunger' shows that the Frances currency rate is high.
Some of France's biggest banks have failed to make good on a promise to stop
speculative agricultural commodity trading a practice the anti-poverty NGO
says has pushed up food prices and led to food insecurity in developing
countries. French bank tries to make a profit from the hungers affecting the
hungers have less money to buy food.
2. What is your country's stand on the 'issue'?
In order to prevent the hunger issue, France established an international
humanitarian organization that intends to end world hunger called Action
Against Hunger (known internationally as Action Contre la Faim, or ACF
International). It is a non-profit organization. Their purpose is to end
children and adults malnutrition while providing communities with access to
safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger in order to make less severe
about the problems. They also work on many bank corruptions that are
finding some profit from hungers affecting them dont have enough money to
buy food.
3. Explain the reason for the stand.

The reason why France established Action Against Hunger organization in
order to saves lives while building long-term strategies for self-sufficiency.
Lifesaving impacts in 40 more countries, 5,000 more field staff assisting more
than seven million people each year, 30 years more of expertise in contexts of
conflict, and disasters and food crises. Their global efforts save hundreds of
thousands of lives each year, but millions of malnourished children remain in
need of lifesaving treatment. This organization helps providing them food by
Evaluating Nutritional Needs, Treating Acute Malnutrition, Preventing Acute
Malnutrition, and Building Local Capacity. All of these solutions help decreasing in
hungers rate and eradicating hungers in France.
