This research explores the correlation between the production of tobacco and undernourishment in developing countries. Zambia was used as an example because of its high rates of undernourishment and tobacco production. We researched the positive and negative effects of tobacco growth in this country, as well as its agricultural potential. We concluded that most of the farmers grow tobacco to trade it, instead of using the agricultural potential in this country to grow food and therefore reduce undernourishment rates and food insecurity.
