    The Independent UK warns that A billion to go hungry with food prices back on rise as demand from a growing global population strains food supplies.

    In line with other commodities, food prices are back on the rise. Combined with the effect of the credit crunch on poorer economies, the number of people without enough to eat will go up by 11 per cent this year, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). Jacques Diouf, director general of the FAO, said: “The silent hunger crisis – affecting one-sixth of all humanity – poses a serious risk for world peace and security. The present situation of world food insecurity cannot leave us indifferent.”

    The world will need 50 per cent more food by 2030, putting massive pressure on land for food just as climate change priorities call for biofuels and more trees to decarbonise the warming atmosphere. Water is also in short supply.
