FAO - The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2013



The multiple dimensions of food security

"The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2013 presents the latest assessment on progress made towards the 2015 Millenium Development Goals target, and presents a broader suite of indicators that aim to capture the multidimensional nature of food insecurity, its determinants and outcomes. Drawing on the suite of indicators, the report also examines the diverse experiences of six countries in more detail, finding a mixed picture of progress and setbacks. Together, these country experiences show the importance of social protection and nutrition-enhancing interventions, policies to increase agricultural productivity and rural development, diverse sources of income and long-term commitment to mainstreaming food security and nutrition in public policies and programmes."
