Exploring Collective Food Security in Asia

Chapter 8: Food security and limits to resources
Changing global climate conditions are creating new stresses on agricultural producers and new demands on policymakers. Given the decreased predictability in the agricultural economy, policymakers are increasingly called upon to intervene to address food security concerns. Food security policy interventions often target agricultural production to increase supply, including by creating incentives to intensify production, such as through increased input use or expansion of cultivation. In attempting to address current food needs, policy interventions that influence the decisions of agricultural producers may have consequences on the state of the resources that are integral to future agricultural production. The challenge for policymakers is to create conditions that provide appropriate incentives for producers in the short term without leading to long-term degradation of resources.
