Monika Adamczak-Retecka and Olga Śniadach, "Towards a Redefinition of the Food Security Concept in the Light of Climate Change", in International Community Law Review
Access to adequate food and nutrition is an essential human right. But ensuring food security has become a real challenge today. Climate change, natural disasters, and inefficient political systems are roadblocks in fortifying this basic need of human existence.
In this new episode, Dr. Olga Śniadach, assistant professor of European law at the University of Gdańsk, talks about the changing definition of food security over time and the evolving policies to tackle the same, based on her co-authored work, "Towards a Redefinition of the Food Security Concept in the Light of Climate Change."
The article provides a legal perspective to food security with emphasis on European laws that now focus on sustainability as a basic principle to achieve the objective.
