Food Security and Globalized Agriculture

Estimated cost: R10 001 – R20 000
Field Of Study: Executive Development
Department Name: USB-ED


In order to deal with issues of food security, it is important to understand the globalised nature of food systems and
how this context challenges attempts to address hunger and food security. This course is particularly relevant in
terms of the recent international and especially South African national initiatives around food security, which have
seen high-level meetings of government departments, food processors, retailers, consumer groups, NGOs and
farmers engaging around how to achieve food security in South Africa.
Course participants will be required to describe, analyse and critically evaluate the different options for ensuring food
security from a sustainable development perspective, within a globalised food system.
