Household food security status in South Africa

Miriam Altman, Tim G.B. Hart and Peter T. Jacobs

Agrekon, 2009, vol. 48, issue 4, 17

Abstract: The Human Sciences Research Council has established a policy research initiative to monitor household food security and to identify and evaluate policy options. In this special edition, a selection of articles from this project is assembled. While deep chronic hunger has fallen with the expansion of the social grants, under-nutrition is a very serious and widespread challenge. This special edition draws together the best available evidence on household food security with the aim of stimulating wider debate.
