Food Matters: U.S. Food Policy for the 21st Century
MetadataShow full item record
Global food security today is on uncertain ground, with countries, organizations, and individuals still scrambling to respond to the 2007-08 food crisis. Global attention has been fixed on looming structural challenges to global food security that threaten to increase over the rest of this century. While U.S. contributions towards global food security have ramped up significantly over the past three years, the next few years will serve as a crucial turning point for global food security policy. The U.S. and other countries will be forced to balance food security-related commitments within a gloomy economic climate while continuing to set progressive policy and implement innovative approaches in the field. Governments, aid organizations, and donors will be forced to continually improve their efforts and implement strong policy changes in order to stay abreast of the challenges ahead.
