Report is an update of the Rural Food Insecurity Atlas
of 2001 released by the M S Swaminathan Research Foundation
(MSSRF) and the World Food Programme (WFP). Since then,
numerous new programmes have been initiated by the central
and state governments for achieving food security in
the country. Giving a broad indicative picture of the
level of food insecurity in different states and the
operation of the nutrition safety net programmes, the
Report concludes that the State has to play a crucial
role in enhancing foodgrain output, ensuring the widest
access to food through expansion of livelihood opportunities
and promoting biological utilisation through appropriate
investments in public health measures.
