(KM) (EN) (PDF) - FOOD AND NUTRITION SECURITY WORKING GLOSSARY | fao.org | Glossary | Scoop.it

"It is with great pleasure that we present the following Food and Nutrition Security Working Glossary, a compendium of more than 150 terms related to food and nutrition security. The Glossary is intended for people from all sectors and disciplines that contribute to food and nutrition related analysis, activities and policy discussions. Its purpose is to provide simple and easy to understand definitions of key technical terms so that we can collectively discuss food and nutrition security, and identify common solutions using a common language. As part of the EC-FAO Food Security Programme on Linking Information and Decision Making to Improve Food Security in Selected Countries of the Greater Mekong SubRegion, project staff at the country level compiled lists of key words and phrases pertinent to food security, and developed bilingual dictionaries in Khmer, Lao and Myanmar languages, with English equivalents. These word lists have been freely
available on the project website and have been transferred to national food security websites for wider access."
