Food insecurity, vulnerability and human rights failure

Book
Subtitle: 
[Studies in development economics and policy]

World hunger is prevalent yet receives relatively less attention compared to poverty. The MDGs
have taken a step to address this with the resolution of halving the number of starving people in the world by 2015. Hunger though is not a straightforward problem of producing enough to feed the world's population; it has many cross-cutting dimensions. This volume discusses the significance of human rights approaches to food and the way it relates to gender considerations, addressing links between hunger and the HIV/AIDS pandemic, agricultural productivity and the environment.
