Food security is often explained in terms of food availability, food access and food utilization. Agriculture plays a fundamental role in people's ability to improve their diets, supplying food for consumption and providing income that can be used to purchase nutritious food. Improved agriculture and food systems will emphasize diversification, encompassing nutrient-dense; climate resilient; economically viable; and locally available or adaptable species. Selecting crops that are traditionally grown by women can also create synergies with objectives to empower women.
Integrated farming systems are a mix of crop production, animal and fish raising, specially adapted to local conditions that can greatly contribute to diversifying diets. Nutrition-sensitive agriculture which promotes integrated farming systems can improve the supply of a greater diversity of plant and animal-based foods and help to ensure people have year-round access to nutritious diets.
