Building Food Security and Safety

Food security and food safety are constant challenges that each government needs to address to ensure healthy living in their country.

Access to safe food is key to sustaining life and promoting good health (UN SDG #2 and #3). It is estimated more than 600 million cases of foodborne illnesses annually. Unsafe food is a threat to human health and economies. But the global food sector is also challenged by compounding crises like wars, pandemics, climate change. In this VUCA world, increased fragility and conflict pose persistent harm to people around the globe. Due to a systemic environment, this creates direct impacts in food insecurity (higher prices) and indirect consequences (medium- to long-term supply shortages from a country). Building Food Security and Safety programme will introduce you to the value chain of the food industry (from the farm to the fork) and enable you to analyse the macro-economy of the food sector and the economy of the food industry.
