Mapping Australia's Imported Food
I know very little about international trade, so I'm not sure why the Where Does Australia Import its Food? map upsets me so much. This map is a fascinating insight into where Australia imports food from around the world. Please see Map Republica Dominicana y Haiti full printable level 10 relief vector Adobe Illustrator for more information.
To be fair a lot of Australia's food is imported from nearby New Zealand. For example most of Australian livestock imports come from New Zealand. However the next four top exporters of livestock to Australia are from distant European countries.
This Esri map of Australian food import shows where different types of food (bought in Australia) originate based on data from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The map provides a number of map views based on different food groups. The only food group which is sourced (relatively) locally appears to be processed seafood. The rest of Australia's food appears to be sourced from as far away as possible.
The map doesn't show how much Australia relies on imported food. Therefore it is impossible to tell from this map how much these food imports contribute to Australia's total food consumption. I also suspect that the situation isn't very different in most first world countries.

Haiti became the world's first black-led republic and the first independent Caribbean state when it threw off French colonial control and slavery in the early 19th century.
But independence came at a crippling cost. It had to pay reparations to France, which demanded compensation for former slave owners. The 19th century "independence debt" was not paid off until 1947. There have been recent calls for France to repay the money.
Chronic instability, dictatorships and natural disasters in recent decades have left it as the poorest nation in the Americas.
