Issues Monitor: IDAS September 2011 - Ensuring Food Security 

As people in developing countries struggle to purchase enough food to fulfill their daily nutrition requirements, the number who continue to go hungry remains high. Climate change and the diversion of crops to make biofuels have increased pressure on food production, contributing to higher worldwide food prices. More global financial support to strengthen supply systems is required to help ensure that every person has sufficient access to food.
