For approximately 2 billion people throughout the world, access to basic foods is anything but guaranteed. Food security is a complicated issue that is susceptible to many forces. Insecurity results from climate change, urban development, population growth and oil price shifts. These are factors that are rarely confined by national borders.
The Global Voices stories featured here were commissioned by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and are written by Global Voices health editor Juhie Bhatia. They draw on multimedia reporting featured on the Pulitzer Gateway to Food Insecurity and the work of bloggers discussing the issue worldwide.
