Do you think vertical farming will solve the world's hunger problem?
I don't think it will solve the hunger problem, but it's a successful ancient method. The Incas here in Peru used it in the form of terrace farming. It does make good use of vertical space, but there are many other issues that affect the world situation. We could write several hubs on it!
No. The "problem" is far more complex than that.
There are countries where the governments intentionally keep the majority of their people in poverty. They use food as a tool or weapon.
Other places are dealing with issues of not enough rain, poor soil conditions, lack of a proper growing environment... vertical farming will not improve these areas.
Some areas are too cold with a limited growing season.
There are countless reasons or contributing factors to the hunger problem of the world. These are just a tiny few.
No. While vertical farming, community gardens, rooftop, porch and balcony farming certainly help, they will not entirely solve the world's hunger problem due to other factors such as government control over food and natural resources, corporate control of food seeds & supplies, climate change, global warming, education, etc.
But vertical farming and other methods of food self sustainability will certainly put a good dent in the problem while enabling many, many, individuals to sustain themselves without so much dependency on the above mentioned negative factors.
Absolutely it will not solve the hunger issues.
I farm in different countries and while I read a comment in this other thread I have to disagree to a bit with what was said regarding the government keeping people in poverty.
I have seen all too many times where yes the government politics plays a role in this poverty all to often I find locals at times to lack motivation and wait for the government to bail them out. The same government they complain about they want help from.
From personal motivating locals to work in these said countries that are bad is often a challenge.
I can see vertical farming being a great addition in modernized countries. In most of third world countries most individuals in the remote parts of those countries all have gardens or small farms for their food.
I do agree there are some countries with challenges to overcome the politics but it can be done and the hunger issue can be solved.
If we want to solve some of the hunger issues we need to start with proper education for the people.
Good question asked.
