The Power Of Developing Nations

The most impoverished people in the world are allowing our own daily survival.

“Developing countries are home to roughly 80 percent of the world’s population, 98 percent of humanity’s hungry people, and 78 percent of harvested croplands.”  – Brookings Institute

 
 
While 98% of the world’s poor are in developing nations, they are producing nearly 80% of our food.
 
That’s a sobering thought.
 
Shouldn’t we help them more?
 
Support them with greater farming techniques
 
Help coordinate communications among them
 
Share the best practice in each region
 
Send them — not make them buy — the latest agriculture technology
 
And not at all least… genuinely appreciate our own privilege
 
The most impoverished people in the world are allowing our own daily survival. 
 
The most impoverished people in the world are allowing us to eat.

If that’s the case, we should be hopping on an plane with delegates of technology leaders, technology, resources, training programs, support, and much, much gratitude, for they are providing the nourishing meals we have with family each day.
