Agriculture and Food Security
The Vulnerability and Poverty Reduction (VPR) team’s research and advisory work on agriculture and food security covers a number of issues. These include land rights, livelihoods and food insecurity and linkages between fair trade producers and the mainstream supermarkets.
The Future Agricultures Consortium, a major research programme hosted by IDS, is looking at the interaction between agricultural growth and social protection. Many of the projects within the agriculture and food security theme focus on the causes of extreme poverty and its particular effects in the rural context. This work also relates to the examination of famine and how in the technologically advanced twenty-first century it still persists.
