It's called Hunger.

Food insecurity is strongly associated with household income. It is, by definition, a condition that arises from a lack of enough income and other resources for food.

The government changed it to "food insecurity" to cast at least some of the blame on the those who are hungry, and lessen it on policies and economy that caused increase in hungry households. Wonder how many tax dollars paid a committee to come up with this gem...

The problem is obviously not the quantity of food production but the distribution and accessibility. Thanks for the article.

Developing countries are becoming victims of their own economic policies. World Trade Organisation imposes conditions for investing in such vulnerable countries who, though having potential, lack technological and economic support. The Foreign Direct Investment (FDIs) are playing havoc in such countries. In the name of supplying technology and knowledge, the developed nations are dumping all types of obsolete items/ technology and reaping benefits.

This is actually robbing the potential and innovetiveness of poor countries and in order to find quick fix solutions, they are simply embracing short term result oriented goals. This is bad and is likely to result in further food insecurities in the near future.
