New Mantra On Food Security

At the recent Asean Media Forum on Food Security held in Singpore July 27, 2012, Pratibha Thaker of the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), said that there is a New Mantra on Food Security.

A few years ago, the Mantra was: “If you feed a man a fish, he will eat for a day. If you teach him to fish, he will be able to fish for the rest of his life.”

With the rising population, the New Mantra is: “If you teach me to farm, educate, provide good input and organize, then whatever the challenge I can join together with my peers and we will fashion our own solutions.”
