Special Issue "Food Insecurity: Causes, Consequences and Remedies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 13213
Food insecurity affects all communities worldwide as many find it difficult to consistently access nutritious, affordable food. This problem is exacerbated by conflict, political insecurity, climate change, and global shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Special Issue seeks to develop a collection of innovative, contemporary research that considers the causes, consequences and remedies for food insecurity at an individual, household, community, regional, or even global scale. Multiple socio-economic factors influence food insecurity, particularly nutrition insecurity; these will be explored within the research papers, alongside the contemporary politico-environmental factors that also play a part.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions from researchers across the world who are considering how to address food insecurity and what mechanisms are of the greatest benefit in reaching the sustainable development goals, especially SDG1: no poverty; SDG 2: zero hunger; SDG 3: good health and wellbeing, and SDG 10: reducing inequalities.
