The subject of food security or insecurity is a complex development issue in most third world countries.In a given locality,the pervasiveness of food insecurity could be a measure of local level of governance,natural disaster,conflict, war,power imbalance,highly skewed economic distribution among citizens,lack of and competition for natural resources,over population and/or other factors.Currently,over 800 million people or 13 per cent of the world’s population are chronically undernourished in a world that can produce sufficient food for everyone and day in and day out,they wake up hungry and go to bed hungry.In Sub-Saharan Africa only,it is projected that by 2020, the number of food-insecure people will exceed 500 million,out of a total population of roughly 1 billion. Within this sub-continent,the Horn of Africa is one of the most volatile regions which might mainly be triggered by food insecurity. The driving forces of food insecurity in this area are not easy to analyse and at times could be enigmatic.Using the case of Djibouti & Somalia,this book explicates how a number of factors are involving in bringing down a country to a state of unparalleled food insecurity & termoil.
