About The Books

Social sector is an important sector for India’s economy and includes health, medical care, nutrition, education, water supply and sanitation, poverty alleviation, housing conditions, etc., all of which contribute significantly to human development. Amongst the above, one of the world’s greatest challenges is to secure sufficient and healthy food for all and to do so in an environmentally sustainable manner. In this context, the concept of food and nutrition security has evolved and risen to the top of the international development and policy agenda, requiring a broad and interdisciplinary perspective for a holistic understanding. Though India produces sufficient food to feed its growing population, yet access to food has been its Achilles Heel. This book makes an attempt to improve the nutritional and health status of the nation - not simply on humanitarian considerations, but also on pragmatic economic reasons as well and both these two disciplines must join forces in planning and implementation in order to achieve the objectives. It is fervently hoped that the transition from “food security” to “food and nutritional security” would help India in achieving the goals of Hunger Free India by 2030 through effective Food Safety Nets.
