Food security and Nutrition

Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. Household food security is the application of this concept to the family level, with individuals within households as the focus of concern.

Adopting this definition entails that ARD sees food security in a wide perspective, where a complex mixture of factors affects the food security of a population. ARD focused in four areas of potential vulnerability:

  • The socio-economic and political environment
  • The performance of the food economy
  • Care and nutrition practices
  • Hygiene practices, and water and sanitation.

This means that to be successful, food security strategies need to address all these underlying drivers by working in a diversity of sectors such as agriculture, nutrition, health and sanitation, education, social welfare, economics, public works and the environment.

What we do!

As a result of the conflict, there has also been a debilitating effect on the Youth & women, especially in relation to their education & general social lives (respectively). Being THE integral part of implementing objectives above, there needs to be a special focus on rehabilitating & educating the Youth & Women.

The search for (& availability of) this precious commodity is – paradoxically so – one of the major sources of conflict (when scarce) & yet the most natural unifying resources (when equitably available). ARD lays special emphasis on the latter, since it will create a conducive environment for the above objectives to be implemented.
