Feeding the World: What are the Challenges and how can we achieve Global Food Security?

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Apr 06, 2022 | World Economic Forum, Kate Whiting

Drawing on the 2021 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World Report – a collaboration between five UN agencies – Kate Whiting of the World Economic Forum discusses the major drivers of the recent rise in hunger and food insecurity: Conflict; climate variability and extremes; and economic slowdowns and downturns (exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic). She lists six ways to address these challenges so as to ensure access to affordable, healthy diets for all, sustainably and inclusively,: Integrating humanitarian, development and peacebuilding policies in conflict-affected areas; scaling up climate resilience across food systems; strengthening the resilience of the most vulnerable to economic adversity; intervening along food supply chains to lower the cost of nutritious foods; tackling poverty and structural inequalities, ensuring interventions are pro-poor and inclusive; and strengthening food environments and changing consumer behaviour to promote dietary patterns with positive impacts on human health and the environment.
