What exactly is famine Many people think that famine is always caused by environmental factors but this was not the cause for the African famines Famine can be defined as a natural or man-made disaster Some of the signs of a famine may be the price of food goes up certain amount of economic distress minor migration to different countries increase in crime or an increase in population These were all of the signs of the African famine When people think of a famine many people think about bad weather poor soil or even lack of water But what was different from any regular famine and Africas famine is that it was a direct result of man-made disasters One of the reasons for the African famines may be the lack of communication in some areas Some cities and villages do not have the means of communication that some of the more prosperous countries enjoy They do not have telephones and they dont always have post offices and many of the people in Africa live in small villages outside of cities Another reason why the famine can be considered a man-made disaster is the lack of capital in parts of Africa Countries in Africa just cannot support their own economy and they dont want to ask for help because they think that it is embarrassing There were so many more people that were unemployed in Africa then those that had jobs Those who did have jobs sometimes did not receive enough money yet to support themselves and their family Lack of capital and communication was just the beginning for the long road to the African faminesAnother one of the reasons why Africa had a famine was all the poor decisions that the people of the African nations made First of all the farmers were not properly educated on how to efficiently farm the land All the farmers thought that it was best to farm cash
