Blurb/Shorttext:
DETERMINANTS OF RURAL HOUSEHOLD FOOD SECURITY: A Case Study of Central and Eastern Kenya. In rural Kenya, households face serious difficulties in feeding their members. Access to nutritious food varies considerably by agro–ecological. When faced with high food prices, households cope by eating cheaper, less nutritious food leading to severe life-long effects on young people. However, little work has been done to understand the food security dynamics and the contributing factors thereof. In Kenya, food security is understandably synonymous with the availability of maize. This book presents the determinants of rural household food security. It shows the need to contextualize plans and actions to achieve the desired living. It provides insights to households and communities on how to be food secure. It will be of particular interest to policy makers, agricultural professionals,NGOs, development agencies and institutions of higher learning seeking ways to enhance food security of rural household in Kenya and elsewhere in the developing world. It is an easy to understand book with a summary of the research findings and contextualized recommendations.
