4.2.1. Hunger is an Agriculture Issue. The alliance to end hunger (April, 2019) Famine is closely linked to present day agriculture. Indeed, ironically, poor people living in remote areas are often small farmers where their work is not enough to FEED their own families.In addition, it is also in countries where food insecurity exists that population growth will increase. There is therefore a new challenge to agriculture, to feed the entire population using a sustainable way in order to preserve the environment.

5. All my research has led me to the conclusions that, nowadays, it's necessary to turn to respectful agriculture in order to protect the environment in which we live but also to make food accessible to all.
