Ethiopia: Auspicious Move to Ensure Food Security

. . . Being food secured is also not limited to stowing away enough food to meet nutritional needs of a community or a country. It is also linked with sustained food supply and creations of assets that will help to avail food and other personal and family needs related to livelihood.

Among other things, food security is also related to food habits, religious and cultural outlooks that could have stronger bearing on either enhancing or discouraging the promotion of food self-sufficiency and security.

Attaining food security cannot be measured only through the volume of food produced and distributed. Diversity in food production targeting disease preventing varieties and cash based production are also important factors. . .
