the commitment to achieve MDG s is encouraging but unless the issue of food security is solved one cannot find the other way out
the possible ways could be
1 to encourage the nutritional/kitchen garden in rural areas where they have low purchasing power and sizable area would be vacant.
2. to invest more in agriculture R&D so that research could be intensified in the areas where it needs focus
3. to utilise the ICTs for reaching the rural areas where the need is more
4. crop specific need based management of the crops with the existing technology
4.beyond all these things the scientific / agriculture research society should recongnise knowledge as additional fifth factor of production in addition to the existing factors of production
This thematic discussion was led by FAO and WFP in collaboration with “The World We Want”.
The consultation was facilitated by the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)
