The Handbook on Public Policy and Food Security provides multi-disciplinary insights into food security analysis across the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As food security is an essential outcome and a part of sustainable and healthy food systems, this Handbook addresses the urgent need to provide a comprehensive overview of the field’s current developments. Paired chapters focuses on a specific SDG in turn, presenting an overview and using qualitative and quantitative methodological approaches to assess the impact of food security on the attainment of the specific goal, and the evaluation of the impact of the goal on food security. This Handbook brings together experts in the field who advocate for a food systems approach, highlighting how various components of a food system function together to achieve the goal of food security for all. The cross-policy themes covered extend beyond the SDGs, proving relevant for public policy and food security in the foreseeable future. This erudite Handbook will be highly informative for academics, researchers and students in agricultural economics, development studies, human geography, human rights and comparative social policy. It will also be beneficial for professionals working in public policy, NGOs and multilateral organisations who are interested in understanding food security and nutrition monitoring.
