2nd International conference on Food Security and Sustainability (Food Security-2017) will be held during June 26-27,2017 at San Diego, USA . Food security is to ensure adequacy of food supplies in terms of quantity, quality and variety of food .Successful food security and poverty-oriented programmes not only assist poor rural populations to produce more and diversified products but to produce a surplus that can be marketed and thereby generate income for the purposes of improving quality of life through improved diet and nutrition, investment in productive activity, and as collateral for credit to purchase inputs and/or other supplies to enhance agricultural or non-agricultural enterprise.
"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 the food security of local people against the limelight of drastic global changes.

One by fourth of the people on globe are “food insecure”, means these individuals do not know where their next meal will coming from. As the world population increases to 9 Billion by 2050, it will require a 70% increase in local food production to feed everyone. It is thus challenge to big league companies to collaborate with farmers and communities to convalesce local food security. Food Security is a complex issue that encloses more than just food production although there is no doubt the cornerstone. Thus social and economic sciences must provide an interdisciplinary basis along with the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, food science maths and physics). Regional conditions need to be taken into consideration like weather changes, Elevation, length of the day and soil difference all need to be considered to arrive the best solution for particular area. Such efforts will determine which type of seeds to plant and by improving agricultural practices based on the local environment can help to achieve a positive impact on yield. High yield hybrid seeds can help farmers improve their productivity.

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, amoderate 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 h be set against an increased frequency of extreme events. Another important change for agriculture is tave 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.

In agriculture and animal husbandry, the Green Revolution popularized the use of conventional hybridization to increase yield by creating "high-yielding varieties" for example hybrid rice. The handful of hybridized breeds originated in developed countries and were further hybridized with local varieties in the rest of the developing world to create high yield strains resistant to local climate and diseases.. According to the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), genetically engineered crops were grown by approximately 8.5 million farmers in 21 countries in 2005; up from 8.25 million farmers in 17 countries in 2004.The main objective of research and development for food security is to find improved seed varieties, that enable reliable high yields at the same or lower tillage costs through qualities such as resistance to or tolerance of plant diseases and animal pests as well as to stress factors such as climatic variation or aridity, poor soil quality, crop rotation practices, and others. Equally important objectives are the transfer of genes with nitrogen-fixing capacity on to grains, and the improvement of food quality by overcoming vitamin or mineral deficiencies. The realization of these objectives will bring tremendous benefits – benefits that can easily be demonstrated using rice (the staple food for 2.4 billion people) and cassava (the staple food for 500 million people)
