    Abstract

    Food security is fundamental to human security and sustainable development. As ASEAN moves towards an integrated community of caring societies in 2015 and beyond, we argue that food security should be an integral part of the ASEAN community building agenda and deserves more attention than it currently has been in the AEC Blueprint. More importantly, ASEAN needs to be infused with a new thinking on food security that is responsive to emerging global threats and challenges. This paper provides a new framework for ASEAN food security by focusing on a regional approach as envisioned in the AEC Jakarta Framework project.
