Food Security in Asia

Amitava Mukherjee,

Food Security in Asia
 

About the eBook

As one of the major challenges of the 21st century, food security requires nations to maintain food production at appropriate levels, provide potable water, and at once, ensure access of people to such food and water. Food suppliers also need to ensure year-long supply of food at optimum price and of high quality, both for needy and for discerning customers.

Food Security in Asia provides a comprehensive analysis of the critical dimensions of food security in various countries of Asia. It compellingly argues that food insecurity is a complex phenomenon that requires a comprehensive response encompassing, inter alia, increasing food production, expanding economic and social access to food, special access to food for disadvantaged groups and, most importantly, breaking down the gender-based barriers to accessing food.

The book discusses the major governmental policies in relation to the communities′ responses. While highlighting the pressure exerted by climate change and world population growth, it also propounds ideas that would help in making informed policy choices.
