Brief account of the Food Security Technical Secretariat

Food Security is considered one of the challenges of the national economy. Lack of Food Security in the country means subjecting the country to dangers of food shortages, and threatening socio economic aspects at all local and national levels. The country realized the impact and magnitude of these challenges and launched the preparation of the National Food Security Strategy. The National Food Security Strategy served as climax of different sector strategies and served as a common ground for all these sector strategies.  The National Food Security Strategy was formulated in 2010, immediately before the onset of the political crisis which took place in 2011. These events negatively affected the revival of the National Food Security Strategy and the practical aspects and implementation of its components. This situation lasted till the year 2013. In 2013 the Higher Council for Food Security was formulated in 21 /5/ 2013 as per the resolution of the Council of Ministers no. (109) for 2013.The formulation of the Higher Council for Food Security is considered the first logical step after the formulation of the National Food Security Strategy and served as one of outputs of the National Strategy.
