Food Security

Being food secure means that all people at all times have physical and economic access to sufficient quantities of nutritious, safe, affordable, and culturally appropriate food, which is produced in an environmentally sustainable and socially just manner, and that people are able to make informed decisions about their food choices. In many developing countries, including the Philippines, food security constraints are increasingly becoming a threat, exacerbating poverty and health problems.

Studies by academic and research institutions can provide useful insights on how to address food security issues. These studies by authors from SERP-P Network members are featured in this second release of Spotlight. They tackle the three facets of food security as defined by the World Health Organization: food availability, food access, and food use.
