JUST ONE DEFINITION OF A WORD CAN CAUSE HUGE AMOUNTS OF ‘FLAWED DATA’
FLAWED DEFINITIONS RISK MAJORILY SEVERELY IMPACTING LIVES OF BILLIONS OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE. Researched By Carol Sakey. WAKE UP NZ. https://wakeupnz.org
The Hunger numbers, are we counting them right? Refers the Millennium Goals that had expired hence the introduction to UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals within this 169 Targets. https://www.the guardian.com 17/02/2015
UN and International NGO’s rallied around the conclusion that Agenda 21 had been very successful with its anti-poverty movement, they reported that poverty had been halved and one of the biggest goals of the MSGs of significantly decreasing poverty had was only a little shy of the target they aimed to achieve. Powerful, compelling evidence eager to convince the world that the global economic system that they had introduced is the right track to be on and to continue down with their new UN Agenda 2030. To make this happen “We must do more of this”
The UN had reported the number of hungry people worldwide, that had been steadily increasing over the previous 2 decades not decreasing. UN Nation Governments in 1996 took the World Security Pledge that they would cut the number of people suffering from hunger in half, there we reported to be at that time 780million hungry people worldwide according to UN Reports. 2009 according to UN Reports 1,023 million hungry people approx. 30% more. NOTE: This is not unfamiliar-The International Shifting of the Goal Posts.
The Millennium Declaration was signed in 2000. At that time the MDGs pushed the base rate back to 1990, allowing them to claim China’s progress during the previous decade, even though this had nothing to do with the MDG Campaign.
At the end of 2012 with only 3yrs to go to the expiry of the MDGs the UN Food Agriculture Org., (FAO) announced an approved methodology of counting hunger, they found it necessary after reports of increase hunger spread to change their reporting, so they revised the numbers. They managed to transform a steadily increasing rising trend in hunger stricken people to a decreasing number. As they retroactively estimated about food supplies and new assumption were introduced that focused on ‘Calories’
It had been reported that 2009-2010 showed a dramatic increase in the number of hungry people worldwide this being due to the food price crisis, and reckless financial speculation which sparked riots in much of the developing world. It was reported that there was a jump in numbers of undernourished people in 2009-2010, their were many voices of concern that question FAO (UN) reliability of their estimation of hungry people globally. Hence a request was made to the FAO (UN) by the committee of the ‘World Food Security’ to organize a technical round table to discuss FAO measurements of under nourishment.
The FAO had come under fire for the decision change of the methodology they had used for 25 years in their longitude study, just 3 years before its conclusion, which was seen as bad scientific standards. Scholars raised questions about the definition of FAO’s ‘hunger’ claiming it gravely underestimates the scale of the problem..The FAO counting people as hungry only by ‘Calorie’ counting.
Measurements of ‘Calorie’ intake at rock bottom levels that is ‘inadequate’ to cover a sedentary persons lifestyle (1800 calories per day) Most poor people do not lead sedentary lifestyles they are usually engaged in demanding physical labour (India the average rickshaw driver uses 3,000-4000 calories per day) FAO recognized the flaw and responded “that ‘ideally’ undernourishment should be accessed at the individual level by comparing individual energy intakes however the approach is just not feasible when it comes to gathering data” The Food Agriculture Org., (UN) do not stop there, its said no ‘methodology is perfect, well UN’ Methodology is far from perfect. It’s predictive, uses assumption, many variable models when it comes to data gathering.
The United Nations launched its UN Agenda 2030 17 SDGs included are 169 Targets- A one script for all People-Planet for much Profit for the Global Elite. It was headed the ‘Goal of Eradicating Hunger and Poverty Once and For All’, and it has no realistic measurements of hunger. It’s seriously flawed and corrupted with whopping lies.
2.Despite the fact we collectively produce enough food for everyone in the entire world even at 3000 calories per day. Yale Prof., Thomas Pogge puts it like this “Somebody, somewhere needs to say the poor have been dramatically portrayed, this is important because it comes to question whether our global economy is actually on the right track at all”
The UN tells us their solution is working, that’s a huge whopping lie.. it is not. The FAO have revealed the link between growth and nutrition is weak, therefore we need to put productive resources back in the hands of the people, small farmers etc., We need to reverse land and water grabs (Small farms being grabbed by large investors) We need to put the handbrakes on monopolization of land, seeds and supply chains by corporations like Monsanto and Syngenta. The data is clear that small scale farmers do a better job and are better for the environment that these large greedy corporations (Research Resource Jackson Hickols, Anthropologist. London School of Economics)
It will take moral courage to challenge the Government, to challenge the transnational corporations (TNCs) that are massively appropriating our food systems throughout the world. As long as we obscure the truth we are less likely to notice the urgency to act is upon us. 27th September 2014 New York Times article entitled ‘Counting The Hungry’ It referenced the FAO (UN) methodology being flawed, wrong. Calculations made by ‘World Nutrition Journal.Org. The cooking of the books. The publishing of FAO’s calorie counting, the inaccurate figures.
https://www.wrm.or.uy Article – Disputes the FAO (UN) definition of ‘Forest’ as not being open and clear. 21/09/2016 Article ‘Silence In Response to Previous Demand for the FAO (UN) to change its flawed data as to FAO definition of ‘Forest’. On International Day Of Forests’ 2017 another request was sent to the FAO (UN) to change its definition on the word ‘Forest’. September 2015 the World Forestry Congress was held in Durban, thousands of people packed the streets to protests against the FAO (UN) as they insisted that FAO change the definition of ‘Forest’.
The FAO (UN) insisted on defining ‘Forest’ to be basically just a bunch of trees. Being a minimum area of land covered by a minimum number of trees at a minimum height and a canopy percentage. FAO promoting the establishment of million hectares of industrial plantations. A petition with a 1000 signatures was given to FAO who were hosting the World Forestry Congress gathering. But nothing changed.
The response from FAO as to its flawed definition of ‘Forest’- “There are over 200 national definitions of the word ‘Forest’, that reflect a variety of stakeholders in this matter. To facilitate the reporting data a globally valid, simple of categorization of forests is required” Tats it, and nothing changed. FAO definition of ‘Forest’ did not influence the way 200 National definitions of ‘Forests’ was formulated at all. This definition was adopted by the UN FAO in 1948 and has remained ever since until this very day
The influence of the Food Agriculture Org., (UN) goes way beyond the definition of the word ‘Forest’. It is also utilized in the UN Climate Change Convention UNFCCC. By adopting FAO definition of ‘Forest communities, farmers are extremely negatively affected.
UNFCCC has globally promoted a view of forests as an area of land containing only tree’s. As for the UNFCCC its mainly the tree’s, the forest that matters because of the capacity to store carbon as they grow, not forest dependent communities. Rural communities have been negatively impacted by the governments restrictions, the interests are not in the communities themselves but the ‘Offset Projects, referred to as REDD + Projects.
The flawed word ‘Forest’ introduced by the UN is a complexly false way of reducing deforestation, it’s a money making opportunity that threatens not just local communities but the whole of the country, nations worldwide. (Expanding the ‘Carbon Sink’ tree plantation). The attracting of climate finance, based on the presence of tree’s. FAO definition of ‘Forest’ influences actions of the ‘financial and development’ institutions, promotes large industrial logging of forests, industrial tree plantations (REDD + Carbon Offsets).
The World Bank is part of the UN conglomerate that partners the FAO (UN) and has been for many decades, as to forest related initiatives. They join forces in the most ambitious plans launched during UN FCCC [email protected]! In Paris the “African Forest Landscape’. A restoration initiative aiming to cover 100 million hectares of deforested, degraded lands in the African continent with trees.
The World Bank jumped on the bandwagon making $1 billion available for the plan to proceed. The World Bank viewing ‘reforestation’ is crucial as to how the world itself defines a forest. (But does not disclose what FAO (UN) defines as a ‘forest’. The World Bank opened the door wide for tree plantation companies, corporations to enter communities throughout Africa.
The ambitious Restoration Plan promoted by the World Bank and FAO, that strongly resembled a previous plan they had both partnered ‘The Tropical Forestry Action Plan that totally failed.
NOTE: FAO DEFINITION OF ‘FOREST’ According to the FAO, Forest is defined as: “land spanning more than 0.5 hectares with trees higher than. 5 meters and a canopy cover of more than 10 percent, or trees able to reach these thresholds -2022.
