Food Sharing on Food Insecurity - Half Way Presentation

  1. 1. Taisei Hirakawa SHARING ECONOMY ON FOOD INSECURITY
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Food insecurity is a major problem in the world: ➤ 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life (World Hunger)
  3. 3. THESIS I propose “food sharing”, a type of sharing economy that distributes edible food that are indiscriminately thrown away in developed nations: Using wasted food as idol resources to feed those in hunger, I believe the system will serve as the new solution in reducing world hunger. Sharing Economy Platform Developed Nations Wasted Food Developed Nations Developed Nations *Idol Resources Poor Nations Poor Nations Poor Nations Food Supply = Reduce Hunger
  4. 4. CAUSE OF FOOD INSECURITY Main cause of food insecurity is the imbalance of power in international trade = the international price is too high or the poor nations income is too low $ $$$ Developed Nations Poor Nations $ $ $ $$ $ $ $ $ $ $$ $ $ $ $ International Trades
  5. 5. CURRENT ATTEMPTS There are different attempts being made currently to resolve food insecurity: food donations, transitioning, urban farming, empowering women in agriculture, etc. However, none of the remedies have immediate effects and none solve the problem at the very root: the international price is too high or the poor nations income is too low
  6. 6. PROVISIONAL CONCLUSION: PROPOSING SHARING ECONOMY ➤ 1/3 of the food produced are begin wasted ➤ Sharing economy will distribute these wasted food to poor nations to resolve food insecurity ➤ Wasted food can be collected at an extremely low cost = high chance that the food can be provided to poor nations at an extremely low price Sharing Economy Platform Developed Nations Poor Nations
  7. 7. CONCLUSION ➤ Take advantage of idol resources that are not being used ➤ “Food Sharing”, a concept of efficiently distributing unconsumed food, can potentially be the solution to global food insecurity
  8. 8. WHAT I STILL NEED TO DO: ➤ Research and think of potential opposition that may arise against “food-sharing” ➤ Research specific attempts being may be made against food insecurity
