1 of 13
Negative Envrionmental Impact Of Globalisation
More land for farming= deforestation. Bigger farms= intensive farming methods. Food exports increase= High food miles
2 of 13
The 4 changes in demand are...
All year demand for seasonal produce. Increased demand for High value food exports from LEDCS. Demand for organic produce. Demand for local produce.
3 of 13
How do we get seasonal food all year round to meet demands?
Import fruits and vegetables from abroad
4 of 13
What's the effect of demand for High value exports on LEDCS
They are only producing cash crops which reduces food security in the LEDCS
5 of 13
What caused these changes in demand?
High consumption in MEDCs due to rising incomes and increased exotic popularity
6 of 13
Negative effects of importing seasonal and High value food all year
Increased food miles. Lower food security for everyone. Cheapl abour in LEDCS. Little land is left for domestic food production
7 of 13
What's caused the High demand for organic produce?
People are worried intensive farming damages environment. They don't want to eat food that's been made using pesticides.
8 of 13
What are the negative effects of producing organically?
It's much more expensive to buy. It still increases food miles because there not enough organic produce to meet the demand so some is still exported
9 of 13
What are the reasons for an increased demand for local produce
More awareness of environmental issues and awareness surrounding the exploitation of workers in the developing world
10 of 13
What are the negative effects of producing food locally?
It can be more expensive to buy and by reducing imported produce then we may be effecting the income of those in the LEDCS.
11 of 13
How can food be produced in a sustainable way?
Reduce food miles, organic farm to reduce impact on the environment, less food packaging to rescue waste, using fair trade systems to ensure growers in other countries are paid reasonable prices.
12 of 13
What makes Sustainable food production difficult?
Local land may not be suitable. Organic farming methods produce much less. With Less land and more demand, intensive farming methods have to be used.
