Food Security and Vulnerability Atlas of Indonesia 2015

Food Security and Vulnerability Atlas of Indonesia 2015

This annual report aims to provide a comprehensive geographic profile of food and nutrition insecurity across Indonesia, in order to enhance targeting, inform policy and improve the design of programmes for reducing vulnerability to food and nutrition insecurity.

The report concludes that, for most Indonesians, food security improved between 2009 and 2015, largely as a result of improvements in a number of food and nutrition security-related factors. However, it warns that progress may be at risk of stagnating if major challenges are not addressed. Three areas require particular attention: i) improving economic access to food including through continued investments in infrastructure; ii) accelerating the prevention and reduction of malnutrition; and iii) addressing the increasing vulnerability to climate-related hazards. The report argues that, while nutrition security should be addressed as a challenge on its own, it also interacts with many other areas, underlining the importance of mainstreaming a nutrition-centred approach in programmes and policies for food security.
