The concept of food security is most often perceived as “being able to secure sufficient food for oneself” generally overlooking the principle dimensions of accessibility, availability, stability, and utility that is required to achieve an overall food security. This Dialogue will examine two key pillars of Food Security – ‘accessibility’ and ‘availability’ by discussing the challenges faced in the Family Islands’ local food system value chain. The objective of discussions is to identify transformative ways to support local island communities in improving their circular economies through efficient food systems. After an introduction by the Convenor and Curators the participants will be divided into 3 breakout discussion groups to discuss the following topics:
- Family Island Circular Economy
- Food Transport and Market Systems
- Local Food Production, Value Addition and the Craft Cottage Sector
