Food Security Innovation Challenge

Food security is a basic need and requirement for survival in drastic situations which encompasses several activities such as food availability, food access and food use.

Research has shown that lack of access to this can result in major health problems such as immune deficiencies in children, mental disability in adults, deteriorating body conditions and ultimately death affecting the social, environmental, and economic outcomes. In some cases, the lack of Food Security has the potential to cause civil unrest.

In some parts of Africa, particularly Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Malawi, Namibia, and Mozambique achieving SDG 2; Zero hunger remains paramount although being 

challenged by factors such as climate change, overpopulation, and stunted economic growth to mention just but a few.

FAO (2019) suggested in a report that promoting sustainable food and agricultural systems around the world will reduce the spread of hunger and preserve natural resources thus the need to invest in various agricultural and food systems.

Examples include shifting cultivation, commercial dairy farming, mixed farming, commercial farming just to mention a few. Putting in place the right systems is important to ensure food security, economic development and sustained farming for a community and country overall.
