Questions related to Food Security
Parts of East and Southern Africa, in particular, have experienced severe droughts, leading to water shortages, crop failures, and food insecurity. On the other hand, intense rainfall events have led to flooding in various regions, especially in low-lying areas and regions with poor drainage systems. What are the other threats and how those threats are related to nutrition security?

Most respondents to the 2022-2023 Global Risks Perception Survey chose “Energy supply crisis”; “Cost-of-living crisis”; “Rising inflation”; “Food supply crisis” and “Cyberattacks on critical infrastructure” as among the top risks for 2023 with the greatest potential impact on a global scale . Those that are outside the top 5 for the year but remain concerns include: failure to meet net-zero targets; weaponization of economic policy; weakening of human rights; a debt crisis; and failure of non-food supply chains.

As we know, seafood is one of the main concerns in Sarawak as their daily food. It is important to make sure the price is stable due to the demand and supply in Sarawak. As human beings, we need to ensure the seafood supply is always there. We must create great food supply logistics to secure food security in Sarawak and Malaysia. Apart from that, by creating a fish pond or aquaculture, we can make sure that it will be easier for us to sustain the food supply and make sure the demand of people can be fulfilled. Is it possible to merge the fishing terminal and aquaculture business?

Today there is a great push for GMO technology as it seems to be marketed as something that has the potential to address major world problems including world hunger, food security, etc. However, there are major concerns about GM technology regarding the potential resistance that pests and microbes may develop. We also need to take into consideration the contamination of the gene pool along with any problems that can't be understood today. We also have the parasitic MNCs who have pushed certain nice-sounding agendas but in application, they have exploited the people. It is in this context that it may be appropriate to develop our indigenous resources of crops etc that have been developed by our ancestors over periods of hundreds if not thousands of years. This would not only maintain biodiversity but it will serve as a basis to preserve tradition as well as address local weather and climatic conditions better than any gmo ever could.
Effect: The term "effect" refers to the change in one variable that is caused by another variable. For example, a researcher might investigate the effect of a new medication on reducing symptoms of a disease.
Impact: The term "impact" refers to the broader consequences or outcomes that result from a particular action or event. In research, the term "impact" is often used to describe the effects of an intervention on individuals, groups, or communities. For example, a researcher might investigate the impact of a public health campaign on reducing rates of smoking.
Relationship: The term "relationship" refers to the connection or association between two or more variables. In research, the term "relationship" is often used to describe how variables are related to each other, such as a positive or negative correlation. For example, a researcher might investigate the relationship between a person's level of physical activity and their risk of developing certain health conditions.
Role: The term "role" refers to the function or purpose that a particular variable plays in a system or process. In research, the term "role" is often used to describe the contribution of a particular variable to a larger phenomenon. For example, a researcher might investigate the role of a particular gene in the development of a disease.
Nexus: The term "nexus" refers to the interconnectedness or interdependence of different variables. In research, the term "nexus" is often used to describe how different factors interact with each other to produce a particular outcome. For example, a researcher might investigate the nexus between climate change and food security, exploring how changes in weather patterns impact crop yields and food availability.

In 2050, our global population is projected to reach 9.8 billion, with 68% of us living in urban cities. In order to feed this massive population, we will need to increase our agricultural output by 70% over current levels. Just to put this number into perspective, we will need to grow more food in the next 35 to 40 years than the previous 10,000 years combined.
The agricultural industry is called upon to innovate and play an increasingly vital role to feed the world in the future.
Your thoughts and views are invited, in light of the role to be played by vertical farming/ indoor urban farming.
Hello everyone, how is everything going on there? I hope you’re doing well. Currently, I'm gonna conduct a study about the role of breed, feed, health, and environment improvement on livestock productivity. However, I have a doubt which one is best to contribute to livestock productivity. I want to know the one that should be prioritized, and/or at least contribute in a high percentage. Nowadays, the livestock sector is being claimed as a driver of climate change and food security. Indeed, to enhance food security, it would be better to mitigate climate change while increasing livestock productivity. I believe that breed, feed, health, and environment should be improved before the commencement of animal production. Here, my question is as follows:
Which one of the following is best contributing to livestock productivity?
A. BREED B. FEED C. HEALTH D. ENVIRONMENT
NB: I highly appreciate and encourage you to provide your description with the potential evidence.
With kindest regards!
How does climate change affect farming? Also discuss how will be the farming and food security in the future under the climate change conditions?
Hi everyone. I'm planning on determining MP presence, size, color, shape, etc., in other words, in doing a visual sorting/characterization of MP accumulated in penaeid shrimp abdominal muscle. Nevertheless, visual sorting becomes more difficult as particle size get smaller, and is time-consuming and is more likely to fall into misidentification errors. Generally, it is recommended to do visual sorting with plastics no less than 500 microns, but I'm anticipating that any plastic embebed in the abdomen is much smaller than that. I was planning to try alcali tissue digestion with KOH and fiber glass microfilters of 2 microns of pore size, and my intention was to observe the filters under a stereoscopic microscope of a minimum of 45X of magnification. But still I'm going to obtain small plastic particles, if any (spoiler: there will be). So my question is if you have any recommendation or alternative method?... observe the filters under a fluorescent microscope using Nile red to facilitate MP discrimination? analyze another tissue? use a greater pore size filter? change the organism... or maybe it is possible to do the job. Espectroscopy methods are not allowed, since it is part of another stage of the project, I just wanna perform visual sorting/characterization.
Thank you very much for your attention.

Hello respected Seniors and colleagues working for a nutritious society,
An idea to find correlations between the localized micro, macro nutrient deficient soils when grown with crops and consumed locally should result in the similar type of mal-nourishment in the populace of the same locality. the incidents of disease and syndromes should be higher,
i wish to study this correlation. and to do that local data regarding the amount or %age people suffering from particular syndromes would be needed, a generalized soil fertility map for the entirety of the country can be found from various researches being done for the characterization and soil surveys of India.
P.S.- Correlation doesn't mean causation, but i believe wholesome food for everyone might be a little easier by studying these characteristics in the human and livestock's.
Please suggest your valuable inputs on whether this study will lead to something or not?
Local seeds are resilient to environmental challenges including climate change but they yield less per unit of area. Whereas, improved seeds are susceptible to environmental challenges but produce more. What needs to be done to make the best use of both cultivars?
There are those who believe that all the modern vocabulary of food security, quantity, globalization, remote sensing and geographic information systems are nothing but emergency terms on geography and then disappear??
