Now, whenever there is scarcity of essential foodstuffs, households with incomes below the poverty line are the most affected. On the entire population, the effects of food shortage will lead to unhealthy struggle or competition all over, increased insecurity, emigration, increasing health issues, high mortality, declining reproduction, increasing food robbery cases in communities, marauders and bandits displacing and disrupting production process. The UN-WFP attested to this with the declaration in its findings that “behind the massive statistics are children, women and men suffering from the dire effects of such severe hunger. Malnourished mothers give birth to malnourished babies, passing hunger from one generation to the next.”
