dc.description.abstractIndia is a net agricultural exporter but food availability is threatened by the effects of climate change and declining water resources on agriculture output. Economic access to food by about a fourth of the population living below the poverty line is problematic. The level of malnutrition, especially among women and children, remains unacceptably high. This paper gives an overview of the various government programs and policies that seek to tackle food and nutrition security in India. Finding that government efforts alone and a business-as-usual stance have been inadequate, this paper explores opportunities for investment and knowledge partnerships between various players to help improve the status of food and nutrition security in India.
