About the Book:
The world today discusses ‘food’ as a ‘strategic’ commodity and its context gets further amplified as food security emerges as the road block to clear the Trade Protocol in the World Trade Organization. The stand of the developing countries is not a knee jerk reaction but a step born out of eminent necessity for sustenance. But is this the right stand for a food secure world??? Sound deliberations and policy implementation has the answer.
With a view to address the concerns of “Global Food Crisis”, the book intends to capture the growing maturity and development of an area of research encapsulating Agriculture, Food Security and its multidimensional impact. This publication promises to be a vehicle for serious academic writing across the board.
