Abstract: Food security is based in sustainable agricultural production, and the rational use of resources has a key role in ensuring a quality production. One of the most important challenges in ensuring food security consists in increasing food production under the background of soil degradation. Starting from this interdependence, the paper attempts to provide a theoretical-methodological framework referring to the clarification of the food security and sustainable agriculture concepts. For this purpose, relevant indicators have been identified: food and nutrition security indicators, indicators that can evaluate the multi-dimensional aspects of food security and agroenvironmental indicators that can describe the present situation and trends of agriculture environmental performance.
