Food First Policy: Malaysia Needs an Agricultural Revolution

As the three Cs - Covid-19, climate change and conflict in Ukraine - wreak havoc on global food supply chains, countries are grappling with the consequences of higher food costs. How should Malaysia be responding to the threat of food security amid rising food prices? Policy expert Prof. Datin Paduka Dr. Fatimah Arshad, Research Fellow at UPM's Laboratory of Agricultural and Food Policy Studies argues for a Food First Policy to secure sustainable and resilient food sources.
