World Food Day 2013 video feature: Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security
A Vietnamese Recipe for a Food System that Works. What is a sustainable food system? One Vietnamese model harnesses tradition and bolsters that with technology and the right policy mix: ‘V-A-C’ farming. It’s a no-waste system integrating fish farming, raising livestock and growing fruit and vegetables, all on the same farm. It has assured sufficient, healthy food to Viet Nam’s rural farmers – about half the population – while generating income and feeding the growing cities. In V-A-C, livestock can even power the lights.
