Attiring global food security and restoring demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By the time 2050 at least nine Billion people need food, and increasing incomes and urbanization will inevitably lead to dietary revamp. The food security competitiveness will increasingly fringe the triple burden of malnutrition– undernutrition, obesity and deficiencies in micronutrient. The importance of the food security issues has led to huge scientific strides which forwards and making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding value of scientific research and technology. Policies to implement global and local food security  needs to be actualize  and decision makers should have to make difficult choices to ameliorate the food security of local people against the limelight of drastic global changes. For some, feeding the world ethically means ensuring universal access to what is needed nutritionally for human survival and mitigating hunger. For others, it is securing food of sufficient quantity and quality for a decent life, a healthy life, or even a high quality of life. Still others widen the lens to include the welfare and rights of agricultural workers and farmers, the environment, or the well-being of nonhuman animals. And still others focus on protecting choice in the marketplace or on respecting cultural and national traditions and ways of life. The challenge for ethically acceptable global food security is to find a path forward, where tangible progress on ethical issues and disagreements in global food policy and practice is possible even in the absence of consensus about relevant values and permissible means.

Track 2: Food Security and its nutritional impact

"Food security" is an adaptable idea and is typically connected at three levels of total: national, territorial, and household or individual. Food security exists when all individuals, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to adequate food that meets their dietary needs and food inclinations for a healthy and sound life. The three determinants of food security are food availability, food access, and food utilization. Attiring global food security and restoring demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By the time 2050 at least nine Billion people need food, and increasing incomes and urbanization will inevitably lead to dietary revamp. The food security competitiveness will increasingly fringe the triple burden of malnutrition– undernutrition, obesity and deficiencies in micronutrient. The importance of the food security issues has led to huge scientific strides which forwards and making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding value of scientific research and technology. Policies to implement global and local food security  needs to be actualize  and decision makers should have to make difficult choices to ameliorate thehttp://foodsecurity.conferenceseries.com/ food security of local people against the limelight of drastic global changes.

Community development for food security is a generally new idea that catches rising thoughts regarding the focal place of food in groups. At times it refers to the measure of food access and availability at the community level, and at other times to a goal or framework for place-based food systems. It builds upon the more commonly understood concept of food security, which refers to food access and availability at an individual or household level (in health and social policy, for instance) and at a national or global level (e.g., in international development and aid work) it is defined as “a situation in which all community residents obtain a safe, culturally acceptable, nutritionally adequate diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes community self-reliance and social justice” community for food security  includes social, monetary, and institutional elements, and their interrelationships inside a group that effect accessibility and access to assets to deliver sustenance locally. It considers ecological supportability and social reasonableness, through measures of the accessibility and moderateness of nourishment in that group with respect to the money related assets accessible to buy or deliver it.

With the global population expected to reach between 8.3 and 10.9 billion by 2050. UN Population Division estimates for the year 2150 range between 3.2 and 24.8 billion; mathematical modelling supports the lower estimate. Some analysts have questioned the sustainability of further world population growth, highlighting the growing pressures on the environment, global food supplies, and energy resources. Solutions for feeding the nine billion in the future are being studied and documented. One out of every seven people on our planet go to sleep hungry. People are suffering due to overpopulation, 25,000 people die of malnutrition and hunger related diseases every day. Next Generation Biofuel demand is increasing because of a combination of growing energy needs; rising oil costs; the pursuit of clean, renewable sources of energy; and the desire to boost farm incomes in developed countries. In turn, the need for crops-such as maize and sugarcane-to be used as feedstocks for biofuels has increased dramatically. That demand has had a significant and increasing impact on global food systems.

Food safety indicates to those hazards that have physical, chemical and microbiological effects it makes food injurious to the health. It also describes handling, preparation and storage of food in order to prevent foodborne illness. Food safety often overlaps with food defense to prevent harm to consumers. Global food safety follows some rules like Codex Alimentations Food safety Policy and ISO22000.Any organization must be follow codex rules in food processing like water analysis to check microbial contact in process water TDS and hardness. GMP and GHP all incoming raw materials must be checked as per parameter given Codex, processing area must have adequate ambient temperature and humidity.

Distribution of food plays an important role from manufacturing to customer’s refrigerated containers are used to carry food product from manufacturing location to retailers. .GMP stands for good manufacturing practice for an example all raw material kept in packets, air containers are provided in all entry doors to restrict, pest control system is maintained in organization.

In an era of scarcity it is becoming increasingly important to address production and consumption jointly because of the linkages between the two. The transition to a more sustainable food chain cannot be met by concentrating on approaches aiming only at productivity increases - the possibilities of sufficiency oriented research have to be explored as well. There should be open opportunities for transition to sustainable and equitable food systems through a systemic approach founded on a better understanding of socio-ecological systems. So far the focus of research and policy has been on the supply-side by providing technological innovations, however social innovations in the domain of production are as important as technological ones. It is equally important to address demand-side issues, and to reduce the present unsustainable levels of consumption. Therefore, research on behavioral or structural changes in food systems, food processing and supply chains should be given a higher priority.

Trade Liberalization is the removal or reduction of restrictions or barriers on the free exchange of goods between nations. This includes the removal or reduction of both tariff  and non-tariff obstacles (like licensing rules, quotas and other requirements). The easing or eradication of these restrictions is often referred to as promoting "free trade." Policies for liberalization in trade that make an economy open to trade and investment with the rest of the world are needed for sustained economic growth. The evidence on this is clear. No country in recent decades has achieved economic success, in terms of substantial increases in living standards for its people, without being open to the rest of the world. In contrast, trade opening (along with opening to foreign direct investment) has been an important element in the economic success of East Asia, where the average import tariff has fallen from 30 percent to 10 percent over the past 20 years. The best approach would be to identify the major sources of income of the poor and ask how liberalization would impact these sources. For a large chunk of the poor population, the principal source of income is labor, and technology the question is how liberalization will impact the real wage. Some of the poor may own small amounts of land, and thus earn a part of their income from producing and selling agricultural products. In this case, how the profitability of what they produce is impacted must be taken into account.

Climate change affects agriculture and food production in complex ways. It affects food production directly through changes in agro-ecological conditions and indirectly by affecting growth and distribution of incomes, a moderate incremental warming in some humid and temperate grasslands may increase pasture productivity and reduce the need for housing and for compound feed. These gains have to increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations. Finally, a number of recent studies are set against an increased frequency of extreme events. Another important change for agriculture is estimated the likely changes in land suitability, potential yields, and agricultural production on the current suite of crops and cultivars available today. Global and regional weather conditions are also expected to become more variable than at present, with increases in the frequency and severity of extreme events such as cyclones, floods, hailstorms, and droughts. The main concern about climate change and food security is that changing climatic conditions can initiate a vicious circle where infectious disease causes or compounds hunger, which, in turn, makes the affected populations more susceptible to infectious disease. Essentially all manifestations of climate change, be they drought, higher temperatures, or heavy rainfalls have an impact on the disease pressure, and there is growing evidence that these changes affect food safety and food security.

An overhaul of the agricultural sector will be necessary to sustain recent high levels of economic growth in the least developed countries and to tackle chronic malnutrition. As cities expand, so do the food needs of urban families. The situation of the urban poor is precarious in the present condition of volatile food prices and the financial, fuel and economic crises. The urban poor, often located in the most vulnerable parts of cities and lacking the capacity to adapt to climate-related impacts, will be hit hardest. The challenges associated with supporting the urban poor demand urgent and adequate responses from city and national authorities and international organizations. Urban policies need to incorporate food security considerations and focus more on building cities that are more resilient to crises. Metropolitan, municipal and other local government institutions can play a proactive and coordinating role in enhancing urban food security. Developing local value chains for food and nutrition security is an important task. It focuses efforts on strengthening capacities of local food producers and business to supply more food to domestic and tourist markets to meet demands for a balanced and nutritious diet and to reduce food and feed imports.

Sustainability of global food production and its standard depend to a greater extent on the quality of the environment. At present time the quality of the environment in which the food production depends on is at a critical margin since environmental degradation and pollution of environment is increasing in a terrify rate. Food security is a condition related to the supply of food, and individuals' access to it. Food availability relates to the supply of food through production, distribution, and exchange. Food production is determined by a variety of factors including land ownership and use; soil management; crop selection, breeding, and management; livestock breeding and management; and harvesting. Water and food security >> UN-Water factsheet on water for food. Water is key to food security. Crops and livestock need water to grow. Agriculture requires large quantities of water for irrigation and of good quality for various production processes. Food security is a condition related to the supply of food, and individuals' access to it. Concerns..... Food availability relates to the supply of food through production, distribution, and exchange. Food production is determined by a variety of factors including land ownership and use; soil management; crop selection, breeding, and selection, crop ... Food distribution involves a series of post-harvest activities .Food is lost or wasted throughout various stages of the food supply chain. Finally, consumers may waste food by throwing it away. Food loss refers to food that is lost at production, post-harvest and processing stages in the food supply chain.
