FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ORGANIZATION
Food and Agriculture Organization was established in 1943 and became a specialised agency of the General Assembly in 1946 to study agriculture policies. It aims to make the first right and need of living, food, reachable to every person and fight poverty. The importance of the committee is increasing as the world’s main agenda is scarcities. Due to increasing heat, changing climate, and forest fires, many significant agricultural regions are in danger. Furthermore, the type of reasons is not only about nature; rising political tension and embargoes create scarcity in specific areas. In this edition of FAO in TANIMUN 2022 , the delegates expect to search for modernised agriculture, solve current absences, and make new policies.
Agenda Item: Creating future policies for food sector and agricultural production by focusing on climate change and current global problems such as economy, inflatıon, devaluatıon of money ………
In case you haven’t noticed, the world is on the verge of a horrific global food crisis. At some point, this crisis will affect you and your family. It may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow, but it is going to happen.
Crazy weather and horrifying natural disasters have played havoc with agricultural production in many areas of the globe over the past couple of years. Meanwhile, the price of oil has begun to skyrocket. The entire global economy is predicated on the ability to use massive amounts of inexpensive oil to cheaply produce food and other goods and transport them over vast distances. Without cheap oil, the whole game changes.
Topsoil is being depleted at a staggering rate and key aquifers all over the world are being drained at an alarming pace. Global food prices are already at an all-time high and they continue to move up aggressively. So what is going to happen to our world when hundreds of millions more people cannot afford to feed themselves?
There are all kinds of indications that we are now entering a time when there will not be nearly enough food for everyone in the world. As competition for food supplies increases, food prices are going to go up. In fact, at some point they are going to go way up.
According to the World Bank, 44 million people around the globe have been pushed into extreme poverty since last June because of rising food prices.
Due to a lack of water, some countries in the Middle East find themselves forced to almost totally rely on other nations for basic food staples. For example, it is being projected that there will be no more wheat production in Saudi Arabia by the year 2012.
You are going to discuss all these problems in this committee and try to fınd solutıons to these problems.
