The promotion of food security: challenges and opportunities for food production and distribution in a context of global environmental and economic changes
MetadataShow full item record
The effects of population growth, climate change, fast urbanization and the increase in demand for energy, water and food resources have contributed to consolidate a complex and interdependent global scenario. Such complexity, results in global risks and challenges that have no observance for political or economic borders, affecting all the planet. Among many obstacles faced by humanity, food security is a major challenge. In this study, I defend the idea that three pillars must be set as a priority in regional and international agendas to address the problem of food insecurity. Those three pillars are: incentive to family farming and small scale food production; good governance; and technological development. At the end of this study, the conclusion is that better management by decision-makers and public power is needed, ensuring that by creating public policies, increasing the awareness of stakeholders and technological innovation, a new global chain of food supply will be resilient, innovative and sustainable.
