"Sustainable agricultural production" the solution to global food insecurity.

Published on June 1, 2021 um 11:58

Explain your idea in details:

Agriculture has always been seen by many as a profession for the poor and as a dirty job, so they shy away from it, and this is one of the reason we are currently facing global food insecurity. According to the "World Food System" in 2020, about 690 million people are going hungry and 135 million people suffers from acute hunger worldwide. The idea is to set up an integrated farm, where crops and animals would be produce. The animals would be fed with the residues from the crops we produce, while the crops would be fertilized with the animals dung, this will reduce the level of waste being produce during agricultural production, With this, people having the mentality that farming is a dirty job and that it's a profession for the poor will begin to find agricultural production interesting, attractive and at the same time lucrative, because waste recycling will take place and that will reduce the cost of production leading to higher income. Most people will never practice agriculture until it is done in a sustainable way, in ways that they will find it attractive, interesting and lucrative. The more the number of people that will find agriculture attractive, lucrative and interesting the more the number of people that will get involved, the more people get involve the the higher the production of food, and once more food is produce, people will have more access to food, and this will reduce global food insecurity and in turn leads to ZERO HUNGER.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

We hope to 1_ Get the youths involve in agricultural production. 2_ Create employment: We intend to employ people to work with us at the integrated farm 3_ Increase Food production, thereby reducing hunger and food insecurity leading to Zero hunger. 4_ Help the community in terms of infrastructures. When hunger is reduce in the society that's the only way we can tell of the impact of our idea, because for hunger to be reduce it means that high level of food production has taken place, for high level of food production to have taken place it means that more people have been involved (employed), for more people to have been involved/employed it means that many people now see agriculture as an interesting, lucrative and attractive business.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

We plan on selling the crops and animals we would produce together with their by_products, as a source of income using the B2C business model. Lack of funding is our biggest threat, but we will keep sourcing for loans and grants until we are able to get. We will not wait until we have a huge sum of money before implementing the idea, we will start with the little we have and what we will be able to raise from friends and families who believe in us and our abilities, so that when we finally get a huge sum of money we will just use it to expand what we have already started. To ensure sustainability, our mission, vision and regulations will be well grounded and only what is contained in them that will be done, to serve as a guide and to prevent us from wandering about and doing something else.

Until sustainable agricultural production is set in place globally, the world would keep suffering from food insecurity, and the level of hunger and poverty will keep increasing.

It's great to see a young person like you venturing into agriculture. I remember when one time I had gone to a village to visit community people I found goats grazing a certain land, when I asked the young man I saw nearby if they were his goats his response was "I can't have those goats, I'm too young to be a farmer". It's true young people and even old alike shun away from agriculture. Keep up your good work.

By sustainable agricultural production we mean one that in the process the environment and the society won't be affected and the future generation will not be affected in terms of producing their own food.

This idea isn't new but people should be getting into it. Integrated farming would be the one of the ideal ways to go since it doesn't need much technology in order to be executed. Though, this idea still uses a lot of land and you'll have to get the right balance of crops to livestock ratio in order to make it a complete circle. In your place though, with your current situation this is one of the best options to support.

In my best idea sustainable agricultural production other solution to the world food insecurity, not only food insecurity alone because many of the problem we have in the world is due to poverty, if people acess to their daily meal easily they will not be use by evil men to become terrorists or bandits to feed their family. Sustainable agriculture is indeed the gateway to global food insecurity. So am in great support of this idea.
