In recent times, there has been significant advances made in the field of agriculture. Despite
this
, a lot of people in the world are still plagued by hunger.
This
essay will discuss the cause of
this
, and as well suggest the solution to
this
challenge. Beginning with the reason for
this
problem, the
number
of people involved in farming are not enough to meet the need of the universe.
This
is because, nowadays, the populace prefer white collar jobs.
Furthermore
, less people go to
farm
Suggestion
the farm
because of the cost of operating one. In a recent survey in India, there has not been any significant increase in the percentage of the population that are farmers in the
last
10 years, despite a 50% increase in the occupants. The stiff competition for the limited government employment gives
further
credence to
this
. So, the challenge of hunger has persisted worldwide due to the few
number
of farmers available.
However
, something can be done about
this
. More and more males and females need to be encouraged to go into farming. The government has a role to play. Loans should be made accessible to anybody
that is
interested in owning a farm at a low interest rate.
Then
, raw materials should be subsidized.
For example
, agricultural micro finance banks can be created, as
this
will make more people want to farm. If all these initiatives are in place, more farmers will increase the world's food production, thereby reducing the
number
of hungry people.
Hence
, the way to curb
this
menace is by promoting agricultural practices,
thus
, increasing people's involvement. In conclusion, while the limited
number
of farmers
have contributed
Suggestion
has contributed
immensely to many people going hungry, programs directed towards raising the numerical strength of farmers will go a long way in dealing with
this
problem.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
