Re: Coming to terms with terminology

I am in full agreement  that term food and nutrition security should be used.

I think that people and governments have become aware to a certain degree about food security but to a lesser degree about nutrition security and thus there is a lot of suffering due to lack of awareness about nutrition security . The use of the  terminology food and nutrition security  should reduce the sufferings of human kind and will guide them to concentrate on quality rather on quantity alone.
Another important point is that we should consider using the proper terminology in the other languages(Arabic for example) which should reflect the same principles and ideas agreed upon in this terminology in the English language.
