Food and nutrition security is a complex challenge crossing many sectors, disciplines and policy areas. At the same time it is exposed to profound dynamics at national, regional and global level. Political leaders and governments need appropriate policies to deliver food and nutrition security (FNS) as a public good. Technical expertise on FNS is abundant, but an adequate enabling environment is needed to use its full potential. Important drivers of change in the food security arena are effective and well aligned policies at the continental, regional and national level; linkages between the different policy domains; a supporting business environment; innovations at the institutional and organizational level; and approaches for up- and out-scaling. Land governance and partnerships are also crucial policy topics.
