Can We Adequately and Nutritionally Feed Ourselves? Give Your Contribution

Post by Admin on Mon Oct 06, 2014 1:58 pm

Food and Nutrition security is of great concern and a challenge which is becoming very evasive to solve or handle globally and yet in the Constitution of Kenya 2010 food is a rights issue.  The level of hunger and malnutrition in the world today is worrying and this is going to become more serious in the presence of climate change. Technocrats at global level and development partners are making efforts to tackle this challenge. Hunger and malnutrition should be considered as a developmental issue.
At some quarters there is a belief emerging that the world has adequate food and that we should concentrate our efforts elsewhere to be able to feed ourselves. Current global population is about 7 billion and expected to reach just above 9 billion by 2050. Give your contribution on this issue of food and nutrition security or just on hunger and malnutrition and how we can manage this problem whether at national, regional or global level.

Yes we can! Our leaders just need to get their priorities right and focus on developing and implementing policies that make farming an alternative source of employment for our youth.

At National level, all what is needed is for the agricultural stakeholders to embrace the new technology in order to improve on agricultural productivity. for example in kenya the issue on GMO can be welcomed for the improved agricultural productivity.public at large should be educated on this for them to understand all about GMO.

Yes. We have had plenty of food across the year in Kenya, to the extent that in some regions it goes to waste. What we need as a country is imploying current methods of preserving and storing food whenever we have surplus.

Kenya is still far from own food stability. We still have so many6 stones unturned in terms of Agricultural advances to achieve that goal
