Ensuring food and nutrition security in rural area of Lagos state Nigeria


Sequel to the discovery of oil, Nigeria has quickly developed into a significant food importing country as the government has gotten careless of the agrarian area since oil is viewed as a progressively practical asset for development. A worry about food security in Nigeria and for sure Africa has reliably developed in the previous decades and has in this way become a contemporary issue requiring the pressing consideration of government at all levels. This desperate imperative is predicated on the stipulation that food security is one of the pointers of a nation's improvement and all things considered, Nigeria can't stand to see the topic as each other undeserving marvel. Malnutrition is far reaching in the whole nation and rural areas are particularly powerless against ceaseless food shortages, malnutrition, unbalanced nutrition, erratic food supply, poor quality foods, high food costs, and even total lack of food. This phenomenon cuts over all age gatherings and classes of people in the rural regions. For one, the number of inhabitants on the planet is expanding at a dynamic, if not disturbing rate which implies that the dissemination and fair appropriation of accessible resources will be challenging.
