The Security Challenge of Food (In)security
CSDS POLICY BRIEF • 12/2021 • SPECIAL EDITION
By Franz Fischler
In 2015, the international community decided to eradicate hunger and assure food security by 2030 as part of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda. Unfortunately, this optimism was not sustained with actions and has been fading ever since. This policy brief looks at the current situation of food (in)security, analyses the main reasons for the fading optimism, and explores possible means to regain it.
This special edition brief is an advocacy plea by former EU Commissioner Fischler in view of important conferences on food security in 2021.
