Food Shortages in Developing Countries Continuing

he world can produce enough food for its population for at least the next few decades. Food supplies have increased faster than population growth, especially in higher income developing countries. But food supplies are uneven. Poorer countries-many in Africaare expected to face severe food shortages in the next decade unless their prolonged and rapid population growth is accompanied by increased agricultural production and/ or growth in purchasing power. If not, then chronic food shortages will develop because such countries cannot produce or import enough food to feed their people.
