  • In the intro, mention that although India is now self-sufficient in food grains production in the macro sense, it has about a quarter of the world’s food-insecure people.
  • In the body mention the need to move away from siloed approach of agriculture serving food security and adopting ‘food systems’ for ‘sustainability’ and ‘better nutrition and embrace the range of activities and actors involved in food production, aggregation, processing, distribution and consumption embedded in their socio-economic and physical context.
  • Conclude by mentioning that for science to be relevant to societal outcomes, it has to be planned and executed within the theory of change.
