Economic Analysis of Food Security in Peshawar, Pakistan
To investigate and explore the condition of food security in District Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 300 citizens were interviewed. The econometric tool of Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient analysis was used and applied for analysis and estimating the data collected. It was concluded from the analysis that food security shows strong and negative relationships with the rise in population growth, rise in biofuel production, rise in poverty and rise in social unrest. Food insecurity is a major issue in KP that must be solved as soon as possible. Poor people are suffering the most and are unable to buy basic food items due to high prices. Food demand is increasing day by day because of larger population, thus resulting in an inflation of food prices. Effective measures are needed to control and reduce the growing rate of population. To eradicate food insecurity, agricultural institutions must be intensified and strengthened, infrastructure and storage facilities must be enhanced and developed, investment and latest machinery & technology are required to be inserted into an inactive agricultural sector.
