Eye on the world: Feeding humanity

In “Worst forms of famine see declineThe Christian Science Monitor reports that while hunger and smaller famines still remain a challenge in areas suffering from war and repression, “calamitous” famines (more than one million deaths) have been eliminated and “great” famines (more than 100,000 deaths) are on the decline. With modern media coverage, a more informed international community intervenes to thwart larger-scale neglect of a hungry population. “It is difficult for a famine to escalate unnoticed in a globalized society,” writes the Monitor.  As a result, experts anticipate that with continued progress in global awareness and good governance, famine of any volume could soon be found only in history books.
