Addressing Global Hunger

Tackling the Food Crisis in a Postmodern World offers an innovative tool for engaging in efforts against hunger and brings forward a hybrid approach to identifying mechanisms of how global hunger is established, identified, addressed, and eradicated within personal and social constructs and values. As the global population continues to grow, the world is challenged with the evolving dynamics of food and nutrition sovereignty. There is a dire need to appreciate what governs the food that we eat and is made available to us on our everyday food plate. In this deeply researched and vitally important book, the authors aim at bridging the global divide between research and practice to help establish a contemporary perspective on tackling global hunger while applying the knowledge learned to address how hunger manifests itself in a postmodern lifestyle. Idea for those in traditional food security focused roles, and valuable as a starting point for those exploring the multidisciplinary nature of this worldwide challenge. Uses multidisciplinary and integrated methods to explore the realities of hunger Features case studies, valuable syntheses of scattered material, and important topics of discussion and debate Provides a guide on differentiating correct from false information when it comes to the specific topic of the chapter

As population estimates for 2050 reach over 9 billion, issues of food security and nutrition have been dominating academic and policy debates. A total of 805 million people are undernourished worldwide and malnutrition affects nearly every country on the planet. Despite impressive productivity increases, there is growing evidence that conventional agricultural strategies fall short of eliminating global hunger, as well as having long-term ecological consequences. Forests can play an important role in complementing agricultural production to address the Sustainable Development Goals on zero

Building resilience will involve boosting food and nutrition security. In order
