Perspective Food Security in Bangladesh
The dimension of security has been changed. The world is facing many different security problems in the 21st century. Food is one of them. Food has already been added as a security threat towards world peace .Most of the developing countries are facing this problem. Now, in Bangladesh, food security is a burning issue. Food Security: According to the definition of Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO),” Food security exists when all people, at all times have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.” Food insecurity in Bangladesh: When people cannot get sufficient food according to their demand, it is called food insecurity. For a man, 2000-2200 kilocalories is required daily on an average and where people intake below this threshold, they are food insecure and tend to experience the symptoms of malnutrition, unable to learn or to work, and have reduced resistance to disease. The present situation of Bangladesh is miserable for low and middle income people. In Bangladesh, 40% people live under poverty and they spend 80% of their total income for buying food. FAO included Bangladesh in the list of 36 food aid crisis countries. FAO has identified two key reasons for prevailing food crisis in Bangladesh, one is 2 floods and another is cyclone ‘Sidr’. WFP seeks $ 15 million for Bangladesh’s food shortage. Josette Sheran (executive director of WFP) warned, without sufficient food aid, WFP would have to reduce its global food aid operations because of rising food and oil prices. The acting country director of WFP Edward Kallan added that WFP has received only $37 million in response to the $ 52 million for emergency appeal in the aftermath of Sidr . On the contrary, the USAID was forced to cut $ 120 million from future aid programme to pay for emergency aid needs. Recently International Food Policy Research Institute (IFRI) remarked Bangladesh’s political and social unrest due to price hike “a serious security issue”.
