Nutrition and food security links
Food security encompasses availability of, access to, and utilization of food for a healthy and productive life. AED works with donor agencies and implementing organizations to develop strategies and approaches to reduce food insecurity and vulnerability in emergency and development contexts. In its food security work, AED strives to ensure that: sufficient, appropriate, diverse, and nutritious food is consistently available to individuals or is within reasonable proximity; individuals have access to adequate incomes or other resources to purchase, barter, or grow sufficient food to maintain adequate diets and nutritional levels; and food is properly used-including appropriate food processing and storage practices, adequate knowledge and practice of key nutrition and child care behaviors, and adequate health and sanitation services.
