DIVERGENCE OF FOOD AND NUTRITIONAL SECURITY- A STUDY ON WESTERN ODISHA

Food security and nutritional security are the subsets of livelihood security. Poor nutritional outcomes of infants and children arise from the poor health status of women, overall poverty, lack of hygiene and inadequate health facilities. The study discusses the divergence between food security and nutritional security in the state as a whole and the region in particular.A multi stage random sampling technique has been adopted for the collection of data.Statistical analysis used for drawing valid inferences are testing of hypothesis, chi square test, regression analysis and fitting of trend lines. In the present study an attempt has been made to address the issues namely: i) incidence of malnutrition and food insecurity through three critical links viz. children, adolescent girls and women, ii) surplus/deficit of production of cereals, pulses, food grains and oilseeds as per requirement iii) trends of production and availability of secondary diets such as egg, meat, fish and milk iv) indicators of malnutrition. Production must be diversified from cereal crop production like paddy to other crops.A life-cycle approach to management was adopted that integrates strategy, people resources, processes and measurements to improve.
