Food security should be a leading voting matter in government platforms. As the world population grows food supplies will be more and more scarce especially in developing countries where there are lower yields due to technical or development constraints. As stated in the text, "One study of 286 agricultural sustainability projects in developing countries, involving 12.6 million chiefly small-holder farmers on 37 million hectares, found an average yield of 79% .... One-quarter of the projects reported a doubling of yield. Research on the ability of these and related programs to be scaled up to country and regional levels should be a priority." This study that promotes sustainability should be a voting matter for everyone to be aware of and how the protections of our food should be on the same thought level as protection of our homes, income or kids.

Discussion Question: Will world leaders let our food supply run so low before they do anything to fix it?
