ARCHANJO, Maria de Fátima; CARDOSO, Jõao Luiz; BORGHI, Elaine  y  LEON-MARIN, Leticia. Food (in)Security in Latin America and the Caribbean: a Discussion about the Data on Food Production and Availability from the FAO and Brazil's Public Policies. Desacatos [online]. 2007, n.25, pp.23-46. ISSN 2448-5144.

Based on a food and nutrition security approach, this paper analyzes the characteristics of food production and availability in Latin America and the Caribbean. It also examines the intrinsic public policies and, even thought it specifically focuses on Brazil, it attempts to reach conclusions that apply to the whole of Latin America in order to guide actions that strengthen the human right to adequate nutrition. FAO's Data for the period 1999-2001 shows disparities, which include a vulnerable dependence on international trade, that hinder the viability of agro-alimentary patterns compatible with an adequate nutrition and the concept of sustainable development.

Palabras llave : food and nutrition security; food availability; food production; public policies; Latin America.
