Exploring the Future of Food and Nutrition Security (FOOD SECURE)


The project involves 18 research/academic institutions in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America in which EEA/EEPRI a part. The FOODSECURE collaboration responds to the challenge of food shortages and volatility by providing stakeholders, in the EU and beyond, with the capacity to assess and address the short term and long term challenges of food and nutrition security both effectively and sustainably. The project draws on an expert, multi-disciplinary, science team to provide a complete set of knowledge to inform and guide decision makers and other stakeholders in formulating strategies to alleviate food shortages. The project has 16 work packages out of which our division collaborates in 4.  The work packages which our division is working on have the following objectives:

· To identify determinants and different levels of causality of global and domestic food and nutrition security

· To design models and mechanisms to improve the ability of decision makers to foresee and respond to future FNS
