Regional Knowledge Networks for Natural Food Security Strategies

With the UN Secretary General initiating the ‘Zero Hunger Challenge’ in February 2013, this project was started by the UNESCAP in July. South and South West Asia epitomized the food security problem in the Asia-Pacific both in terms of present gaps and future challenges for its population. The objective of the project is to strengthen natural and regional expertise to review and assess national development strategies, and support the sharing of such expertise at the national and regional level. The project analyzes the current national frameworks and strategies in place in Sri Lanka for achieving food security and assessing the implementation and effectiveness of these frameworks and strategies in achieving the zero hunger challenge.
