Abstract


  • This first issue of the Nutrition & Dietetics for 2016 focuses

    on food security. As an introduction to the broad spectrum of

    papers contained therein, this review will consider current

    definitions of food insecurity and then go on to discuss how

    to address the determinants of food insecurity (Table 1)4

    within a new paradigm defined by the SDGs, as follows:

    • People (end poverty and hunger);

    • Planet (ensure sustainability of resources and arrest

    climate change);

    • Prosperity (encourage equity and promote technological

    advancement); and

    • Peace Partnership (strengthen global solidarity).

    The review will also consider training and educational

    needs for public health nutritionists and dietitians to become

    competent in this complex and multidimensional area of

    practice.
