Community Development and Food Security

This course looks at the importance of sustainable community development for food security, and how community-based food and nutrition projects can promote economic development. While income-generating projects can have an immediate impact on individual and household food security, food security projects contribute to community development through their impacts on the formation of human and social capital. Cases from around the world will be used as examples.
