Food and Nutrition Security for the Americas
Challenges and Opportunities for this Century


IANAS INITIATIVE

                          

Assuring food and nutrition security is generally regarded as one of the key global challenges for the 21st century. Population growth, climate and environmental change and technology development will all interact to determine how our various nations will assure an adequate food supply to the citizens of the Americas. Equally important will be national agricultural policies, land use patterns, market systems and systems of infrastructure. These policy dependent parameters are set by national governments and states within nations.

The aim of this project is to assess the outlook for food and nutrition security (FNS) over the next fifty years within the Americas, with the goal of informing national policy makers of critical issues and potential options for each major country of the Americas. The project is being implemented by the national science academies of the American hemisphere through the Inter-American Network of Academies of Sciences (IANAS) with financial support from the German National Academy of Sciences-Leopoldina, the German Government (Ministry of Education) and the Global Network of Science Academies (IAP-Science). Parallel projects are also underway for the European, Asian and African Networks of Science Academies.

Mayor Findings for the Americas

The challenge for the Americas will be to retain the ability to feed and adequately nourish itself while also making a substantial contribution to the food supplies available to the rest of the world.

The Americas are heterogeneous with respect to climates, topographies, agricultural practices, health and nutrition challenges, research and educational development, and governmental institutions. Despite these heterogeneities, there are a number of generalizations that emerge from the IANAS assessment of food and nutrition security in the Americas. One is that Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) have played, and will continue to play a key role in agricultural development, in the provision of nutritious foods and the guarantee of food security. A second key finding is that the Americas, like other regions of the world, face major challenges in environmental degradation, including the degradation of essential water and land resources...
