Famine Crisis May Worsen This Year in Four Countries - NBC News
NBC News reports: "Global food crises worsened significantly in 2016 and conditions look
set to deteriorate further this year in some areas with an increasing
risk of famine, a report said on Friday. 'There is a high risk of famine in some areas of north-eastern Nigeria,
Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen because of armed conflict, drought and
macro-economic collapse,' the Food Security Information Network (FSIN)
FSIN, which is co-sponsored by the United Nations food agency, the World
Food Programme and the International Food Policy Research Institute,
said the demand for humanitarian assistance was escalating."
Comment: I wonder if there is a general reluctance to help when it's known that the cause of the famine is man-made (war) and not due to natural disasters?
