The UAE has one of the world’s most comprehensive plans to address food security, but much can be done to improve its resilience and sustainability. The UAE is considered food secure due to its economic and political stability. As a desert country, lacking in water and arable land, the UAE is facing considerable food security challenges of its own. With a growing population, and rising consumption needs, the UAE must tackle this challenge head on. Indeed, the UAE has recently appointed a new Minister of State for Food Security, signaling a renewed focus on this strategic policy area. This policy paper aims to draw conclusions and recommendations on how to enhance the policy, regulatory and governmental frameworks to effectively address food security.
