Raising awareness and increasing understanding of food security

Food security as defined by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation is “a situation that exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.” Following a baseline study carried out by Oxfam, the international confederation of NGO’s together with the European Union created the Food Security and Nutrition South Caucasus campaign to raise awareness and increase the understanding of food security and nutrition among the public and public authorities in Georgia and Armenia. The campaign also hoped to engage stakeholders in the food security debate, and ultimately, to influence policy change. The Food Security website acts as an information portal for the campaign.
