Foodsecure combines rigorous analyses and stakeholder participation in order to:
• better understand the determinants and different levels of causality underpinning global food and nutrition security;
• improve the ability of decision makers to foresee and respond to future food and nutrition security crises;
• provide guidance to stakeholders on critical pathways for technological and institutional change and policies, and on the integration of a diversity of visions in a common framework.
