    Water - Source of food security. World Food Day: 16 October 2002.<p></p>Water and food security are intimately connected. Many of the over 800 million people in the world who still go hungry live in water-scarce regions. When FAO launched its Special Programme for Food Security in 1994, it was well aware that limited access to water was often a major constraint to increasing food production.

    España se ha sumado a los países que han situado de nuevo la agricultura en el centro de sus agendas de desarrollo. En 2008 incrementó su cooperación en agricultura, desarrollo rural y seguridad alimentaria, aunque la ayuda alimentaria de emergencia fue la que más creció. Aún así, la magnitud del reto del hambre exige un esfuerzo mucho mayor, en cantidad y calidad. Un esfuerzo que no desvíe recursos de otros sectores también clave, como la salud y la educación, para alcanzar el primer Objetivo de Desarrollo del Milenio: reducir a la mitad el hambre y la pobreza extrema.

    La industrialización agrícola en el sigo XX provocó una transformación en los procesos del sistema agroalimentario, que trajo consigo la desconexión del productor con el consumidor. En la actualidad, mientras que la mayoría de los consumidores sólo optan por la adquisición de alimentos para satisfacer las necesidades básicas de nutrición; otros consumidores empiezan a interesarse por la dimensión social, ambiental, cultural, territorial y de salud que engloba el hecho alimentario.

    North Macedonia

    Agricultural production is inextricably tied to climate, making agriculture one of the most climate-sensitive of all economic sectors. In countries such as the Former Yugoslav Republic (FYR) of Macedonia, the risks of climate change for the agricultural sector are a particularly immediate and important problem because the majority of the rural population depends either directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihoods.

    Albania

    Changes in climate and their impact on agricultural systems and rural economies are already evident throughout Europe and Central Asia (ECA). Adaptation measures now in use in Albania, largely piecemeal efforts, will be insufficient to prevent impacts on agricultural production over the coming decades. There is growing interest at the country and development partner levels to have a better understanding of the exposure, sensitivities, and impacts of climate change at farm level, and to develop and prioritize adaptation measures to mitigate the adverse consequences.
