Addressing Global Hunger: Lessons Learned from Syria and Venezuela (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Addressing Global Hunger: Lessons Learned from Syria and Venezuela offers an innovative tool for engaging in efforts against hunger and brings forward a hybrid approach for identifying mechanisms of how global hunger is established, identified, addressed and eradicated within personal and social constructs and values. As the global population continues to grow, the world is challenged with the evolving dynamics of food and nutrition sovereignty. In this deeply researched and vitally important book, the authors aim to bridge the global divide between research and practice to establish a contemporary perspective on tackling global hunger while applying knowledge learned.
