Food diversity is an essential and sustainable means to improve the diets and health of smallholder farmers in developing regions. Addressing livelihood options in these communities therefore requires that we broaden the focus of research and development to include a much wider range of crop species. The book examines the food security threats facing the countries of Southern Africa. and explores how climate change will increase the efforts needed to achieve sustainable food security throughout the region.

Neglected and underutilized fruit species (NUFS) can make an important contribution to the economy, food security and nutrition requirement for Sri Lanka. Identifying suitable areas for cultivation of NUFS is of paramount importance to deal with impending climate change issues.
Nevertheless, limited studies have been carried out to assess the impact of climate change on the potential Author: Sujith S. Ratnayake, Lalit Kumar, Champika S. Kariyawasam. In Kenya, about indigenous fruit tree species occur, however detailed studies on diversity of IFTs and their consumption in Kenya are scarce.
The Project A case study was performed by Simitu et al. () in the drylands of Mwingi District, Eastern Kenya, where households were randomly selected to collect data on IFT abundance on farms. The nutrition, nature and livelihood connection still exists as Indians eat local, nutritious, home-cooked meals, which are more than often frugal.
But this is because we are poor. The question is whether we can continue to eat healthy meals sourced from bio-diverse nature and. The Centre was established to address ways to increase the use of underutilised crops for food, nutrition, medicinal and industrial products.
The enhancement of currently underutilised crops is a key to food security, to the conservation of biological diversity and to the preservation and restoration of fragile and degraded environments.

It is not uncommon that new crops suddenly attract a lot and international attention from private and public actors based on their acclaimed potential to contribute to sustainable development.
Such sharp increases in attention can lead to big investments and promotion campaigns to domesticate and commercialize these crops at industrial scale.
However, in many cases the research of these plants Cited by:. Food and Nutrition Security studies are complex and multidisciplinary by nature, with human livelihoods at the core.
