About this book

This publication addresses the global challenges of food and water security in a rapidly changing and complex world. The essays highlight the links between bio-physical and socio-cultural processes, making connections between local and global scales, and focusing on the everyday practices of eating and drinking, essential for human survival. Written by international experts, each contribution is research-based but accessible to the general public.

Reviews

“Its main goal is to address some crucial issues of food and water security and the influence of global food systems on the livelihoods of people from all over the world. … One of the major strengths of the book is its interdisciplinary character and practical approach that makes it useful for both scientists and policymakers. … I find the volume highly enlightening for building on previous research on food and water security … .” (Ada Górna, Hungarian Geographical Bulletin, Vol. 66 (1), 2017)
