India and China risk world food E-mail
On food are India and China is now largely self. They have both since 1985, never more than 6% cereals imported. But because the world population and meat consumption rises, the surplus on the world not as big as before. Today the average Chinese consumes 2 times as much grain as in 1980. If the consumption to the level of the West increased, it has 40% of total world production of cereal.
China and India undergoing a huge economic growth and development which unfortunately is not without risks. Ten years ago, only 6% of the suppliers of supermarket giant Wal Mart Chinese, now that more than 80%. India is slightly slower start, but experts believe that the growth in China over the next decade less effective will explain. This growing industry is also big consumers and polluters. The World Watch Institute writes in his recent State of the World has some what that will mean for the world. If swallowed China in 2005 already 25% of all crude steel in the world, 33% of the rice and cotton and nearly 50% of the cement. The ultimate question is whether China and India will be able to consolidate their land. Today, they already have not much space for the growing of food and by the strong growth of cities will be only less. Not that the land is not lost, then there is the question of whether there is sufficient water. In both countries, the water in many places is very large and also shows the erosion in China at 17% of the fields and in India at 28% to be very serious.
