We are pleased to present our second Occasional Paper, “Food Security in Kazakhstan – Feeding the World, Nourishing Peace”, published today on KazakhstanUNSC.com – a multilingual website dedicated to Kazakhstan’s bid to secure a seat as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the years 2017/18.
Food security, next to climate change, has emerged as one of the most pressing global challenges of the 21st century. Every day, 25,000 people and more than 10,000 children die of hunger and associated diseases around the world.
As one of the world’s top exporters of grain and flour, Kazakhstan takes food security very seriously, and proactively provides humanitarian aid for affected countries, as this Paper explores. The Kazakh government has made food security one of the four key pillars of its UNSC bid, alongside water security, energy security and nuclear security.
We hope that you find our latest Occasional Paper enjoyable and informative, and that you subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube for all the latest news and progress on Kazakhstan’s UNSC bid.
