This text analyzes diverse food related problems, namely: the continued prevalence of mass under nutrition in the developing world; acute food crises in some places associated with conflict; the emergence of over nutrition in the developing world and the vulnerability of the contemporary global food production system. The most important of these issues are explored with particular reference to their implications for the majority of the world’s population who live in what was traditionally categorised as the ‘developing world’.
