AAAF Knowledge Paper on Food Security in Asia & Africa

February 2014 | Africa
An estimated one billion out of the global population of seven billion, go to bed hungry every day. And most of them live in Asia and Africa. The FAO has projected that global food production has to increase by 40 per cent by 2030 to keep pace with world food demand. This will require huge investments to improve and establish an effective food supply and overcome decades of under-investment in the agriculture sector.
Though the problem of food security is well articulated and clearly defined in Asia and Africa, what is required is clear understanding of the issues that need to be addressed in order to surmount this problem. This makes it essential to understand the elements of the supply as well as demand side challenges to enable a nation in deciding its food security strategy. The paper dwells on issues, challenges and opportunities on food security in Asia & Africa.
