Summary
Discussions of food security usually focus on the question ""Can we feed the world?"" Providing enough food is a major challenge. To do so without unacceptable environmental impacts, so that food sufficiency is not compromised over time, is a deeper challenge that systemically links to other issues of sustainability, notably including climate change. This book discusses several challenges involved in providing food security. It also examines the role of biotechnologies and the implications for developing countries
