«When all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life».
That is what “Food Security” stands for according to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
Why food security?
Because every people, in every country of the world (developing or developed) needs food. That is obvious. What’s not so obvious is delivering sufficient and adequate food to everyone. You see, all people have the right to food, but not everyone on earth has access to it. And that is where “security” comes up. Despite the fact that we are living in a world where everything is possible, it seems that food cannot actually reach every single person on earth.
More than 700 million people (out of the 6.8 billion) are affected by undernourishment all over the world. By hearing that, one question comes up: Population grows day by day. According to the United Nations, by 2050 it will have risen up to 9.1 billion. How will our planet manage to nourish us all?
The answer is simple and it lies in our hands. It will and it can nourish us all as long as we allow this. Because, there are signs which show that some people are working against this – some of them unwillingly, while others fully in conscious.
