Poverty and Obesity
 
Hunger and malnutrition Define hunger and malnutrition in terms of calorie and protein intake and describe the distribution of both at a global scale. Show an awareness of the distinction between chronic (long-term) and periodic (short-term) hunger. This topic must be related to the earlier one on population and resources.
Growth of food output Recognize the changes in food production over the past few decades: the decrease in production per capita at a regional scale but an increase in actual values at a global scale. Be aware that this has been the result of increases in cultivated land area (usually due to irrigation), changes in farming methods and technological innovations. Students are not expected to study any of these factors in depth.
