"The green revolution has an entirely different meaning to most people in the affluent nations of the privileged world than to those in the developing nations of the forgotten world"

- Norman Borlaug

About this Quote

Norman Borlaug's quote speaks with the plain contrast in between the privileged and forgotten worlds. In the affluent nations of the fortunate world, the green transformation is seen as a way to increase crop yields and decrease the ecological effect of farming. However, in the developing nations of the forgotten world, the green transformation has a far more profound meaning. It is viewed as a method to improve food security, decrease hardship, and produce financial opportunities. The green transformation has the possible to transform the forgotten world, however just if the privileged world is willing to buy the essential resources and technology. Without this investment, the forgotten world will stay forgotten and the green revolution will remain a dream.
