Ensuring food security

Published on 14 May 2010

Allow me to congratulate your newspaper for its very timely editorial, 'Ensuring Food Security' on May 10, which acknowledges the importance of consolidating national food security and nutritional gains already made in Sri Lanka. Globally, today there are over one billion hungry people - a record number.

Food insecurity is a complex phenomenon involving issues of food availability, access and utilization and has to be addressed in a holistic manner.
