Food security is a complex and multidimensional issue. In order to take
on its challenges, especially now that climate change is worsening the food
situation worldwide, working on technological innovation in agriculture is
just not enough. Instead, it is necessary to take into account also the cultural
dimension of food production. As a matter of fact, besides natural assets,
such as water, soil, biodiversity and so on, that are so essential in the
process of producing food, also cultural resources, such as social systems
and local knowledge, are fundamental.
