Food security has been achieved when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their nutritional needs and satisfy their food preferences, so that they can lead a healthy and active life. Food is a human right for the individual. EWB-DK’s projects on food security ensures access to daily healthy food for the world’s poor and vulnerable, as well as income generation to financially support themselves and their families.
With a focus on food security, innovative solutions are developed to meet the challenges and needs that exist within a given community. The implementation of these solutions involves water and solar energy which also constitutes a large portion of EWB-DK’s projects within the food security concern. It is in this way that EWB-DK’s projects promote a close collaboration across the organizations thematic networks.
EWB-DK’s competencies and activity areas with food security:
Partners and Practice
EWB-DK works with professional partners, regional and local authorities, local communities and populations, and other NGOs. EWB-DK supports professional partners with technical assessment, capacity building, technical design, and education, as well as regular coordination, reporting and follow up visits.
EWB-DK supports the local partner with technical expertise where local knowledge is not sufficient and where the local partner can further develop their food production facilities, organisational capacity and secure an income for their communities.
