Innovative and territorial approaches to food and nutrition security

Published : December 2017

Geography matters. Within countries, food and nutrition security situations (FNS) vary significantly. National analyses typically mask pockets of poverty, hunger and malnutrition concentrated in specific geographic areas, particularly rural areas. Rapid urbanisation and continued population growth mean that food insecurity is also becoming an increasingly urban issue. A territorial
approach to FNS recognises the need to tailor policy responses to local contexts and challenges. It also recognises the importance of harnessing rural-urban linkages so that no-one is left behind. This paper has been prepared as contribution to the thematic session of the 33rd RPCA annual meeting, held from 4-6 December 2017 in Cotonou, Benin.

Themes : Agriculture & Value chains, Food security, Nutrition, Rural-urban links, Social protection
