Sécurité alimentaire en Méditerranée : un enjeu stratégique majeur

Abstract : Food security is tied to the right of every individual to get access to “quantitatively and qualitatively adequate and sufficient food corresponding to the local cultural traditions, and which ensures a physical and mental, individual and collective fulfilling and dignified life freeof fear”. However, in theMediterranean, food insecurity is increasingly prevalent with a high risk of worsening in the next twenty years. While the food production deficit in this region is very worrisome, in the medium and long term, concerns about the increased health risks must be taken seriously by political leaders in Europe and the Mediterranean. Strategies to restore amandatory level of food security exist and can be deployed as part of binding but stimulating sustainable development policies. They require the strengthening of agricultural and food trade and the increase of Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in all the sectors involved. Whatever be the solutions, food security should be considered as a top priority for politicians in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
