Thank you for the background in the document which is an interesting read.
I thoroughly agree with you final definition copied below.
“Food and nutrition security exists when all people at all times have physical, social and economic access to food, which is safe and consumed in sufficient quantity and quality to meet their dietary needs and food preferences, and is supported by an environment of adequate sanitation, health services and care, allowing for a healthy and active life.”
It is how ever vital to consider it in terms of the new world food nutrition security context- that we all now face today due to immediate impacts on Northern hemisphere food security due to committed rapidly increasing climate change impacts.
Food and nutrition insecurity from now on is not limited to the Global South.
Global drought has been increasing for 30 years and NH drought over ten years.
The Northern hemisphere warming is continuing to increase faster than the global average, with the Arctic now warming several times faster.
Increased warming increases heat waves and drought.
Arctic snow and summer sea ice albedo cooling is the air conditioner of the NH summer.
As the NH albedo air conditioner is rapidly being lost NH drought, heat waves, and climate variability increase.
Only an emergency transformation in the world food economy and world energy economy can prevent the collapse the great NH agricultural regions and the world food economy. With that of course civilization will descend into chaos and collapse.
