Food systems have a need for better conceptual and applied tools to evaluate the extent to which they can provide a more stable foundation for attaining and maintaining food security. The book conceptually designs and appraises a more robust and dynamic food provision system (FPS) framework that integrates resilience and food security, that is, devises a framework to reconnect food, people and ecosystems to guard all three. The study then assesses two major FPS in Belize to illustrate how historical FPS resilience patterns and relationships ensure the food insecure persistently remain vulnerable and indigent. It is a strong example of how sustainable human health is dependent, given alternating food provision system patterns, on the linkages across FPS, ecosystems, and social and economic conditions. Only a handful of academics link resilience research and food studies. The book addresses this novel research topic largely unexplored. It is accessible to all scholars, researchers, students and development workers engaged in, or with interests in, all aspects related to food.
