Introduction to Food Security

This is a video that defines and explores the concept of food security using animated illustrations, spoken commentary, and pauses for discussion. Identifying the accelerating growth of population and the proportion of people who are chronically hungry, it provides the United Nation's definition of food security and its associated dimensions of availability, access, utilisation, and stability. It focuses on the need for healthy food and equality of food distribution. The video lasts for 2:49 min and the last part discusses the re-emergence of local food systems in which food is grown, processed, packaged and consumed in the same local community.
