Description

Over the last half-century, food security has remained a prevalent issue in developing countries as governments struggle to provide their citizens with easy access to nutritious foods. International aid is a main component for reestablishing food security and is intended to provide short-term relief to struggling nations. However, developing countries that rely on international aid in order to achieve food security generally develop a long-term dependency on global assistance. Developing countries reliant on aid experience negative effects on their political, social, economic, and environmental aspects as a result of the flawed international aid policies that do not address the increasing urbanization of developing countries. Therefore, the current system of international aid needs to be improved in order to provide a long-term solution to food insecure nations and provide countries with lasting political stability.
