UK DEFRA Releases Analytical Paper on Food Security

The United Kingdom's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (UK DEFRA) has released UK Food Security Assessment: Detailed Analysis. This paper details a framework of indicators for assessing UK food security developed through stakeholder engagement and expert input from various Government departments. The scorecard-style assessment forms contain the common elements of definitions of food security: availability, access, affordability, safety and resilience. It enables the department to provide signposts for areas needing more in-depth investigation or further research.
