Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

LEARN 2 What's the biggest food security challenge near you?

This is a real challenge to me.
To begin with, I live in a country in which agriculture is one of the basis of economy. Agriculture goods, wether raw or processed, still earn over half of Argentina´s foreign exchange remaining an indispensable pillar of the country social progress and economic prosperity. In the other side, the urban poverty rate is 20%.
The World Bank have 7 active programmes on agriculture in this moment.

So, just to understand what is going on, I will name the major problems I think my country have:
-Absence of Public Policies and absence of Control Agencies
-Corruption: Argentina ranks 106th out of 179 countries in the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index for 2009 (government and private sector corruption)
-Tax evasion and capital flight
-Unequal income distribution
-Absence of consensus among all social actors, about poverty policies
-People without tools to access to food

There is food, but there is not access to it. You can call access to money, culture, education, mistaken policies, mismanagement, etc
So, the biggest food security challenge is try to change this situation by helping people have food access in my city through education and culture tools.

Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
