Tackling food security problems from the roots

As we endeavor to tackle, food security problems, we need to understand food insecurity better and in all its manifestations. Where does it start from? Who are worst hit? In both cases, it all starts with the farmers. They are the first to be hit despite the fact that they're the ones producing for us the food we consume. So where is the problem? The fact that famine begins with the farmers and are the most hit and yet they are the ones producing food for us is quit ironical if not paradoxical it calls for immediate measures to find a solution.

In this regard, we should be looking at ways of enhancing their storage methods and facilities to minimize on wastage of harvests, discourage them from selling all their harvests and off course link them to markets for better prices.
