‘Hunger is an important aspect indicating food insecurity’. Give argument in favour of statement along with its dimensions.



Points to be remembered:

Answer to be written in the exam:

  • Hunger is another aspect indicating food insecurity . Hunger is not just an expression of poverty, it brings about poverty. The attainment of food securit y, therefore, involves eliminating current hunger and reducing the risks of future hunger.

  • Hunger has chronic and seasonal dimensions.

    • Chronic hunger is a consequence of diets persistently inadequate in terms of quantity and/or quality. Poor people suffer from chronic hunger because of their very low income and in turn inability to buy food even for survival.

    • Seasonal hunge r is related to cycles of food growing and harvesting. This is prevalent in rural areas because of the seasonal nature of agricultural activities and in urban areas because of casual laborers.
