The U.N. Security Council warned on Wednesday that the world will face the most devastating famine in its history “within years.”

According to the 15-member council, the U.N. is deeply concerned that warring countries such as Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan and Nigeria are all about to face a famine that could potentially see tens of millions of people die.

“[We have a] deep concern that ongoing conflicts and violence have devastating humanitarian consequences and hinder an effective humanitarian response in the short, medium and long term, and are therefore a major cause of famine [in these four countries]“, the U.N. said.

Reuters.com reports: “The Security Council calls upon all parties in Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and northeast Nigeria to urgently take steps that would enable a more effective humanitarian response,” the statement said.

The United Nations appealed in February for $4.9 billion to combat what it calls the largest humanitarian crisis since the world body was formed more than 70 years ago, but U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said only 51 percent of that amount has been received.

“These four contexts are very different but one thing is in common – they are all affected by conflict, they are manmade and also the humanitarian access is hampered by the ongoing conflict,” Sweden’s Deputy U.N. Ambassador Carl Skau told reporters.

The statement also asked U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to brief the Security Council in October on impediments to responding to the risk of famine in Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and northeastern Nigeria and make recommendations on how to overcome any obstacles.

  1. While world population would drop on its own by the 2070’s it will probably be more abundantly clear soon that Deagle is on track to be correct. That said, IF things remain as is the population will continue to grow for a few more decades. The projected food supply for this growth estimate means DOUBLING the food supply over the next 25 – 30 years! Imagine how it too us this long to meet supply as it is and any disruption in currency exchange rates, weather, war can affect millions. Now factor in the DEATH OF THE PACIFIC as FUKUSHIMA continues to RAGE HELL ON EARTH! Governments will abandon all hope as these converge on a TIME line that will make it ALL BETS ARE OFF and NK can either play nice or go to their quiet space (to be mild). . . .
