Agriculture sectors provide livelihoods for millions of workers, particularly in rural areas, and underpin food security and nutrition.
Food security exists when people have access on a continual basis to sufficient, safe and healthy foods. Community food projects have grown in response to concerns around access to fresh and affordable food, health, sustainability and resilience in a changing climate; and can have an impact on the way communities think about food, and questions of food security and food sovereignty; and forge mutually beneficial relationships and networks. Such projects also offer an opportunity to grow or provide access to culturally appropriate, affordable and healthy produce. Investing in agricultural productivity, infrastructure and social protection are some of the other ways in which food security and food sovereignty projects can be funded.
