New Paradigm for Food Security
Tuesday, 2013/08/06 | 08:26:15

Achieving a high level of food security robustness ensures more stable and sustainable food access for current and future populations. Governments should aim for robustness in their food security systems.  Three policy recommendations are forwarded by Dr. Paul Teng and Maria Morales of the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore to contribute to the achievement of food security robustness. These are:


  • - Engage stakeholders in dialogue and consultation for better policy interventions.
  • - Encourage and facilitate public-private partnerships for agricultural R&D, basic infrastructure development and interventions.
  • - Improve existing policies to incorporate a holistic approach and focused coordination in attaining food security robustness.
