World Population Growth

This was a second spread I put together for the same project. With my topic being Hunger and Farming, world population played a large part in my research. By 2050, the world's population is expected to reach 9 billion. With the current estimate of the world population being that one third is well-fed, one third is under-fed and one third is starving, the population growth could allow that to represent a whole lot more people. The regions of the world with the highest population growth...Northern Africa and the Middle East, are also the world's driest regions, putting them at an especially high risk of food crisis.
