Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition

Publisher: CUTS International

In celebrating Sustainable Food Systems, World Food Day is recognising the need for systemic change to end hunger and malnutrition. Systemic change is urgent because even though for decades the world has produced one and half times enough food for every man, woman and child on the planet, nearly 840 million people go hungry while almost 870 million are chronically undernourished. Unsustainable models of development and uncontrolled population growth are degrading the natural environment, threatening ecosystems and biodiversity that will be needed for our future food supply.
