Professor Bill Pritchard, Convenor of the Food, People and the Planet node at the Sydney Environment Institute, is one of three editors alongside Rodomiro Ortiz, Professor of Genetics and Plant Breeding at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Meera Shekar, Lead Health and Nutrition Specialist at the World Bank (based in Washington, DC) to have recently published the Routledge Handbook of Food and Nutrition Security. With more than 30 chapters from world experts, this comprehensive, multi-disciplinary publication confronts the serious environmental, nutrition and political problems of the global food system.
“… The challenge of developing a comprehensive understanding of food and nutrition security needs pursuit. Whilst individual actors and stakeholders will inevitably proceed along specialist pathways, their separate efforts are best leveraged where there are broadly-accepted parameters that define the core dimensions of the issue. This handbook presents 33 chapters in pursuit of this goal. Readers can both glean the detail of an issue within the content of an individual chapter, and also appreciate its wider context of examining how it is positioned in relation to other chapters.” – Prof Pritchard
