Abstract

Today, hundreds of thousands of people are suffering from the effects of a potentially preventable famine in Somalia. The key to preventing famines like this in the future is to pinpoint the human-controlled causes of famine. In this paper, that goal is achieved using evidence from Ethiopia and Bangladesh and their experiences with famine and natural disaster in the last 40 years. The lessons learned from these two countries are then applied to finding famine prevention solutions for the food crisis Somalia faces today.
