    The world is currently producing twice as much food as it needs, but through a simple lack of proper food distribution channels, 30% of it is being wasted. The rest never makes its way to those who need it most. In addition, an increasing number of large-scale farms produce for the world market, while small-scale farms produce for local markets only. Food sold at these local markets is often the only food accessible to rural populations. As globalisation proceeds and these parallel farming systems need to keep coexisting, the question remains how to keep up the balance between them. For instance, how can agricultural service delivery organisations help subsistence-based farmers safeguard their ability to ensure local food security? With all the external factors including the economy, the environment and current social structures, all organisations need to continuously adjust their structures, policies and programmes to follow suit. In this programme, which has been devised especially for development organisations wishing to improve food security in developing countries, we equip you with the essential skills and competences with which you will be able to make a difference.
