Consumer Behaviour and Nutritional Security

Food security is presently being undermined by a number of challenges such as rapidly growing demand and changes in consumption patterns.The 2007–2008 world food crisis tested the resilience of the global food system and revealed deficiencies in its capacity to efficiently adjust to and absorb shocks that show many signs of growing in the future. If consumers actually do modify their food preferences, the factors that push consumers towards this modification, how consumers overcome this changing vulnerability, if this vulnerability exposes these households to food insecurity and finally to explore adaptation strategies at both individual, household and societal levels. On the other hand Food and nutrition security is about ensuring that everybody is able to access sufficient, affordable and nutritious food. Therfore to build resilience to food crises and help countries ensure that no one is left hungry. In particular, fighting under-nutrition is vital to give the world's poorest children a chance to lead healthier lives, learn better and improve their future income opportunities.

 

Global demand for food is rising because of population growth, increasing affluence and changing diets. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) forecasts that global food production will need to increase by over 40% by 2030, and 70% by 2050, to meet the growing demand.Yet water is expected to become scarcer, and there is increasing competition for land. In addition, climate change will reduce the reliability of food supply through altered weather patterns and increased pressure from pests and diseases.To meet the Millennium Development Goal on ending world hunger, agriculture will need to produce more food from the same or less land, using less water, energy and other inputs, and reducing waste and adverse environmental impacts including greenhouse gas emissions.
