Hi, I have 3 of my classmates’ posts. I need you to respond to each one separately. Also, one source at least for each one of them. Don’t write about how good their posts or how bad. All you need to do is to choose one point of the post and explore it a little bit with one source support for each response. The paper should be APA style.
The question was: Choose a country in the 2019 Global Report on Food Crises (Review each other’s
Choose one of the drivers and discuss method(s) for addressing this driver. Be realistic in your approach and remember to think about linkages to the drivers that could be addressed.
The term “driver” is discussed in the article and is essentially the underlying cause(s) of food insecurity. For example, conflict is a major driver of food security around the world. Linkages to this particular driver could be cultural, geographic, or political. The idea is to discuss the root causes and associate factors that drive and perpetuate food insecurity.

The existence of prolonged inter-communal conflicts within South Sudan is the cause of the humanitarian crisis. In fact, it
Climate change is another cause exacerbated the humanitarian situation was the climate shock. It is apparently accurate to highlight that due to the existence of moderate rainfall levels in South Sudan, the country recorded low yield output. As a result, the quantities failed to meet the prevailing demands of the people.
It is essential that this factor has had a major impact on the economy. Such that contributed to the occurrence of low supply of the much-needed commodities of trade. In reaction to these manifestations, consumer prices have increased almost three times (Food Security Information Network, 2019). The facet of insecurity was always in the lead for interrupting the probably growing trade projects of both local as well as foreign businesses within the region. Ultimately, food insecurity has become a vital concern in the region. And as inflation was the main issue, the value of the local currency depressed as it became weak by each day. It negatively affected other stakeholders interested in trading with the country.

Burundi is a small country in Central East Africa near Tanzania, The Democratic Republic of Congo, and Rwanda. While from the 2017-2018 the number of food-insecure people has decreased, there is

Countries have been able to shift their countries upward by moving from agriculture to more industrialization. Since climate change is affecting the production of crops, it may be time to venture into a new market. Burundi has an underdeveloped manufacturing sector that can be further built out to help improve the economy. One way to do this is by developing partnerships or relationships with neighboring countries. Surrounding countries are also struggling with similar drivers; meetings can help to create an action plan to address the problems. While also offering different perspectives and solutions. The issue in the past with many countries is pride, not wanting to receive help from other nations. Since these countries are neighbors, they may be willing to listen to each other’s opinions.
Significant work is needed in Burundi; complete restructuring of their governmental system will help to ease the political tensions. Once tensions simmer down the country will be able to focus on building up the areas of most significant concern. This reconstruction will take decades to undo all of the pre/post-colonization issues. Political issues are deeply rooted throughout all of the drivers of food insecurity in Burundi.

For Ethiopia, conflicts in neighboring countries have resulted in an influx of refugees, mainly experienced in the rural areas of the country which lead to the conflict and insecurity driver. The country does not have many economic opportunities and food prices have been generally high due to which economic shocks have been a driver of food insecurity. Lastly,
Being an African country, climatic shocks would be a major driver in the food insecurity that people face in Ethiopia. 23% of people in Ethiopia do not have access to safe drinking water while 186,000 children who are below 5 years of age are acutely malnourished. Even the 2015-16 food security crisis in
The diagram above shows that Ethiopia has the highest number of food-insecure people, 8.1 million, amongst all of the African countries.
Being an agriculturally rain fed nation, irregularity in weather conditions leads to
Although the country has a very strong yield growth, that
Research has shown that increased climatic variation leads to reduced agricultural output and increased agricultural prices. Since Ethiopia’s economy is mainly agriculturally fed, climatic shocks also
On the other hand, floods also have a similar impact on the agriculture productivity of the country. Increased floods lead to decreased productivity as the crops are destroyed. In May 2018, floods and the Sagar cyclone led to
