Assessment – Literature Review Unit: challenges in food security
Your assessment for this unit is based on addressing the challenge of food security. Your aim is to develop a solution to ensure 9 billion mouths receive food in 2050. Solutions may focus on any area in the food system including (but not limited to) production, processing, logistics (storage and transport) and waste minimisation.
Please take the time to read through all instructions for your assignments carefully. Please pay particular attention to the word limits, as writing more than the required amount will lose you marks. The University has a strict policy on the total word limit allowed for unit assessments and this, together with the development of skills in writing clearly and concisely, is the reason why word limits are imposed.
You will critically review a minimum of five peer-reviewed journal articles relevant to your proposed solution. You will synthesise these sources (compare, contrast and critique) and identify gaps in the literature, to highlight the need for your solution. At the conclusion of your literature review you will need to provide 3 to 4 succinct points that describe the main aims of your solution in the context of food security.
Length: 1300 words maximum, excluding headings and reference list.
Assessment criteria: Introduction, Synthesis, Gaps, Conclusion, Referencing, Grammar and Spelling
I choosing Hydroponics(farming without soil) as my proposed solution.
In the recent past, there have been challenges to food security globally which has been
caused by many factors. For instance, the high population is one of the most significant
problems because the increasing number of people raises the demand for food which later
aggravates the food insecurity. Due to this, there was the launch of the World Food Day on
October 16. This day gives a chance to the government to make stronger international and
national unity for it to fight malnutrition, poverty and more so hunger (Gregory, 2014). However,
sinking eroding soils, falling water tables and increasing temperatures has continuously made it
hard to feed the over growing populations. As a result, water resources and control of the arable
lands has adversely increased the food security struggle………………
