I entirely agree with you!!! In fact Food Security - using who's lens or measurement??? This can really be contestable. It is high time we pay heed to large extent to the context of our local communities or indigenous people and their perceptions and understandings related to food security issues. We have carried away by scientific beliefs for too long now and we have not made much headway. It is high time we include local communities/indigenous people in our discourses on food security and poverty issues to inform policy since they are the most affected when it comes to such issues. They have been living and struggling for centuries with food security and poverty issues and thus are in much a better position to deep dive into these issues with more realistic information and confidence.
Just food for thought!!!
The debate continues!!!
