Attempt 2: Science and technology has made immense progress in all the fields including agriculture. Although these advancements have been achieved, many people around the globe do not get sufficient food. This essay will shed some light on the causes of this issue and solution for it.

First and foremost, money is unequally distributed amongst people especially in under developed and developing countries. Rich people are consuming organic food on daily basis because of advances made in farming, whereas poor people including farmers do not get minimum required food. Consequently, children are malnourished and this is quite evident in poor countries of Africa. Secondly, many of the nations do not have proper cold storage facilities though they produce large amount of grains and crops. This results in raw food being wasted. For instance, India produces huge amount of crops every year but because of insufficient storage, quantity of food wasted is paramount.

This issues can be addressed by the government by taking adequate measures in resolving them. Food should be taxed at the minimum and if possible, should not be taxed at all and taxes should be made high on luxury items. Moreover, farmers should be paid more amount for their products so that they are also benefited and have sufficient food for them. Private companies should be encouraged to setup cold storage. Since government has limited budget, companies can help minimize food wastage because of lack of adequate storage units.

In conclusion, government has to take appropriate measures to ensure citizens are provided basic necessities of life which in turn will help with developing nation as a whole.

4. ‘This issues’ – these issues not this issues
5. ‘farmers should be paid more amount for their products so that they are also benefited and have sufficient food for them’ – another irrelevant argument and not a real solution for lack of food
6. Conclusion needs to be a bit more elaborate
