About this item

Food security is when all the people all the time have physical and economic access to safe, sufficient and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. The 2008 food crisis revealed serious and systemic flaws in the current system. Ewing-Chow and Slade suggest rethinking food security in view of climate change, global value chains (GVC), potential growth in the number of political refugees and climate migrants, and no longer thinking of it as national self-sufficiency, but rather understanding the problem as one of global collective food security. They also cite the need to understand how trade, investments and information play a role in addressing food security concerns, and promote a collective response to future crises, which may be possible even under the current WTO rules.
