Town Hall Meeting Assignment #3: Talking Points Assignment
Complete this form, print it and bring it to the Town Hall Meeting.
Provide a summary of your issue (you may have refined this since the beginning of the semester):
Population growth and food production are directly correlated when it comes to the issues of food shortages. As the population changes, it sets up criteria whereby the needs that were previously available in the society drastically change. Asians and Africans have totally different approaches to food security. Therefore, there is the need to take good care of our environment by minimizing the global warming so as to reduce the rate of changes in the climate. Moreover, deforestation should be an issue of the past and should be avoided at all cost. The community should set up a structure which allows for awareness creation on the importance of taking care of our environment.
Identify your proposed solution or awareness campaign (you may have refined this since the beginning of the semester). This should be either a solution that an actual lawmaker, court of other governmental organization could enact/implement OR the details of a campaign that would result in widespread understanding and awareness of your issue:
The proposed solution or awareness campaign is based on forest and water conservation about crop and livestock production diversity. Similarly, the campaign ensures that the environment is protected by avoiding deforestation together with emitting a large amount of dangerous gasses.
Provide at least two arguments in support of your policy solution or awareness campaign. Include facts, evidence, quotations, etc. from your sources, interest groups, readings or other research you have completed. Please cite your sources:
Global warming is as a result of human activities which lead to general disruption of food supplies globally. Controlling global warming requires individual and international attentions. “The population factor and crisis management ensure a better address to the problems facing the society such as the global warming” (Hngn, 2016). The interest groups address food shortages by focusing on various institutions and structures.
Reinstating productivity and reliability is also crucial in addressing economic and agricultural systems based on food security because it is one way of ensuring that no society is left behind in food security programs.
Provide at least two arguments in opposition to your policy solution or awareness campaign. Include facts, evidence, quotations, etc. from your sources, interest groups, readings or other research you have completed. Please cite your sources:
A solution to food security and environmental conservation can only be found with the aid of the issues that created the problem (World Food Program, 2017). The alternative forms of monopolistic approaches in production can offer a high level of quality fair and sustainable development in all sectors of the economy.
The current world population strains the existing food reserves, and therefore, there is the need to set structures that will give room for reforms. The reforms should be effectively addressed by the interest groups.
Action Plan: What can you do to influence your policy issue?
Give at least two interest groups or organizations with which you could work to pursue your proposed policy solution or complete your awareness campaign. Explain what each does to affect your issue-area and state what you could do to assist that group:
The United Nations under World Food Program which is tasked with matters of food security and all decision-making processes based on food security. I can ensure that the group reaches the most vulnerable in the society by acting as a link between the group and the society.
Environmental Conservation and Management Committee tasked with matters of environmental protection. When it comes to the matters of assisting the group, I can ensure that the programs they launch in various areas come to reality by enhancing a good relationship between the group and the community.
Provide at least two questions pertaining to your issue-area for your consultant that may assist you in understanding how to make a difference in that issue.
What is the role of the community in environmental conservation?
Why is it necessary to take care of our environment?
