Could Blockchain Tech Eliminate World Hunger?
The United Nations ‘World Food Programme’ (WFP) announced that 10,000 people had taken the opportunity to deliver food to refugees in Jordan using the Ethereum blockchain.
One of the benefits of using Blockchain, which is being trialled as a means to wipe out child poverty, is that it could provide help on a much larger scale, and the WFP has an ambitious goal: to expand the scheme to cover more than 100,000 people by the end of the year and to eliminate hunger worldwide by 2030 – a project they’re calling “ZeroHunger”.
“Using blockchain, we aim to cut payment costs, better protect data, control financial risks, and respond more rapidly in the wake of emergencies,” explained Robert Opp, the WFP’s Director of Innovation and Change Management, “using blockchain can be a qualitative leap – not only for WFP, but for the entire humanitarian community.”

Blockchain-based frameworks could be an incredible answer for following the circulation of agricultural resources. By lessening the loss in nourishment production network, blockchain could bring many advantages to governments, sustenance cultivators and agriculturists. More effective utilization of food resources could help end world hunger inside a few years.
