172.   POLICY STATEMENT ON FOOD SECURITY IN LESOTHO

To ask the Minister of Agriculture and Food Security to comprehensively outline Lesotho’s food security policy given the following prevalent shortcomings;

  • Failure to attain national food sufficiency through own production instead of importation, and food access guarantee to all citizens;
  •  Limitations to access markets by subsistence and small holder farmers;
  •  Poor land management characterized by allocation of residential sites on agricultural land as well as effects of climate change. 
  •  Lack of knowledge to make optimal choices for nutritious and safe diets; and,
  •  Non-availability of adequate timely and relevant information for analysis, communication, and reporting on the impact of food security programmes in Lesotho. The food policy should clearly address measures to be taken to ensure food security.
