Social Protection, Agriculture and Food Security: Synergies and Conflicts
What are the responsibilities of the state in ensuring a minimum level of food security to its citizens?
What is the best channel of providing social protection: cash/asset transfer, food for work, employment guarantee….?
Can public works created under food for work/ employment guarantee programs create lasting assets? Can those assets improve agricultural productivity and local food security?
Drawing from social protection experiences from Mexico, Ethiopia and India, the video Social Protection and Agricultural Development raises these and many other questions. It includes interviews with policymakers and experts associated closely with such programs in these countries.
We invite you to share your thoughts and experiences on these issues; to raise some more questions and hopefully answer a few.
With Warm Regards,
