Why food security matters…

According to the UN, (1948), Food is the basic human right.

The food demand will increase by up to 62 per cent by 2050. The food gap will be 56 per cent in 2050 as of 2010 if the growth is business as usual.

The more 593 million-hectare land will be needed to meet the gap of food demand

Some of the nine planetary boundaries have already crossed their limit and posed a sudden collapse.

Food system is simply not working for all. Hunger, obesity and food waste are out of control.

In the past 30 years, private and public investments in agriculture and rural areas have remained stagnant or have declined in most developing countries.

Hence, the food system ought to be addressed by adopting holistic approach from locally, globally and legally to leave no one behind.
