South Asia is home to around one-fourth of mankind and houses the largest proportion of undernourished people in the world. South Asia has the recognition of being the second most food-insecure region next only to sub-Saharan Africa. This study also depicts the current situation of food security in South Asia and illustrates how agricultural education and innovation hold the master key to solve the food security issues for the world's most densely populated region. The entire economic and agricultural landscape in South Asia has undergone considerable change in the last few decades. All countries in this region have experienced a robust economic growth and improvement in human development indices, reducing poverty and malnutrition to a great extent.
Promoting Agricultural Research and Development to Strengthen Food Security in South Asia
On April 21, the United Nations projected that because of Covid, the number of people facing severe food insecurity worldwide could double to million. The same week, in the United States, the five-week total of job losses rose to a staggering 26 million, pushing millions more into food insecurity. Amid uncertainty and confusion at the onset of the pandemic, the CSIS Global Food Security Program responds to some of the most critical, and frequently asked, questions about food security and safety. Are we facing a global food crisis? At the beginning of , million people around the world were already facing extreme hunger.
This course encourages critical, evidence-driven analysis of effective government policy responses to food security and nutrition challenges in low-income countries. Through lecture, discussion, case studies, and secondary data analysis, students will be able to: discuss the range of policy levers that are used to enact national food security policy in developing countries; describe evidence of the effectiveness of these policies and programs in improving food security, poverty, and nutrition in different contexts; analyze key sources of food and socio-economic data to understand and inform policy-relevant decisions; and produce reasoned and critical writing to influence critical policy debates. Note: If safe and possible, an optional in-classroom component at the Jaharis Center on the Boston campus will also be offered conditions permitting. Skip to main content. Start Search.

COVID-19 and global food security
Food security  is a measure of the availability of food and individuals' ability to access it. There is evidence of food security being a concern many thousands of years ago, with central authorities in ancient China and ancient Egypt being known to release food from storage in times of famine. At the World Food Conference the term "food security" was defined with an emphasis on supply; food security is defined as the "availability at all times of adequate, nourishing, diverse, balanced and moderate world food supplies of basic foodstuffs to sustain a steady expansion of food consumption and to offset fluctuations in production and prices". The final report of the World Food Summit states that food security "exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. Household food security exists when all members, at all times, have access to enough food for an active, healthy life.
The Journal of Innovation and Knowledge JIK focuses on how we gain knowledge through innovation and how knowledge encourages new forms of innovation. Not all innovation leads to knowledge. Only enduring innovation that can be generalized across multiple fields creates theory and knowledge. JIK welcomes papers on innovations that improve the quality of knowledge or that can be used to develop knowledge. Innovation is a broad concept, covering innovation processes, structures, outcomes, antecedents, and behaviors at the organizational level in the private and public sectors as well as at the individual, national, and professional levels. JIK articles explore knowledge-related changes that introduce or encourage innovation to promote best practices within society.
This program aims to strengthen university training in policy analysis for the food systems, with emphasis on developing countries, using a social entrepreneurship approach. The social entrepreneurship approach involves participatory training based on class-room presentations and discussions of cases of real policy issues facing policy-makers for use in undergraduate and graduate teaching. The approach attempts to simulate real policy-making situations within an analytical and conceptual learning environment, employing a hands-on, participatory environment in which the students are taught to be social entrepreneurs. This website includes a large number of cases, which can be downloaded free of charge by instructors, students and other interested parties worldwide. The cases are organized by sub-topics corresponding to the chapters of the supporting textbook available for purchase at Cornell University Press and online bookstores.
Food Security in the Developing World
COVID first emerged in China in late , and the country mobilized a major epidemic response in January , with stringent lockdowns and travel restrictions. The World Health Organization declared a global pandemic on March 11, and many countries soon began to impose measures to control the spread of the novel coronavirus. Since then, the disease has taken hundreds of thousands of lives and disrupted the livelihoods of billions of people. In March, as the enormous reach and potential impact of the pandemic became clearer, IFPRI researchers and guest authors began to look at its global repercussions on poverty and food and nutrition security. As the emergency response phase began in many low- and middle-income countries in the following months, we continued to use this blog series to analyze COVID impacts.
