All of us share in a moral and pragmatic imperative to work toward food security as an instrument of human security, peace, and civilization. Over the next 30 years, food security will be a critical priority in planning for climate security, political stability, national security and economic growth. Read the Food Security Strategy's Group's Declaration on Global Food Security.

POLITICAL STABILITY

 

Food insecurity heightens the risk of political conflict, increases the likelihood      of civil unrest, and undermines democracies. 

ECONOMIC GROWTH

 

Food insecurity promotes hoarding, price and export controls, creating market volatility and loss for pro-ducers and consumers at a national level and throughout the global supply chain. 

NATIONAL SECURITY

 

Food insecurity stimulates demographic instability and threatens the rule of law and order both within nations and along their borders.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL  SECURITY

 

Sustainable forms of agricultural intensification and food waste reduction are essential strategies for limiting climate change and establishing lasting food security.
