Instrument Category: 

Launched on 15 April 2014, the Centre of Excellence in Food Security is co-hosted by the University of the Western Cape and University of Pretoria. It was established in the context of changing food systems facing ecological, social, economic and physical challenges and its focus is on the generation of energy and knowledge to improve access to sustainable and sufficient amounts of nutritious food for poor, vulnerable and marginal populations. The research the centre will undertake will identify science-based programme interventions and policy mechanisms which will help South Africa in overcoming food insecurity and to ensure sound and good nutrition for it citizens. This centre is under the directorship of Prof Julian D. May.
