1. Food Security in Asia

    Food Security in Asia

    Edited by Wen S. Chern, Colin A. Carter, Shun-Yi Shei
    Food security can be defined as the perceived availability of a high-quality, domestically-produced staple food supply which will maintain the existing standard of living. This book provides a forum for a panel of distinguished authors to debate such issues as whether or not many developed countries in Asia – such as Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and Singapore – have legitimate concerns about their food security. They find, controversially, that this issue is of importance to all countries, not just to developing countries lacking the income to acquire an adequate food supply. Learn More
