Ending hunger and malnutrition caused by a lack of steady access to nutritious food is the prominent goal number two of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The challenge of increasing food supply to feed a growing global population puts sustainability of agriculture and aquaculture on a level with ensuring food security. Food production systems in the 21st century need to optimise the use of water, energy and fertilizers, reduce pollution and soil degradation, and at the same time maximize high quality agricultural yields and fish harvest under increasingly unstable environmental conditions. Small scale farmers need to become more resilient to natural hazards and long term changes, e.g. through improved access to financing and affordable insurance. And finally, international and governmental stakeholders need timely, spatially explicit, precise, and reliable information on upcoming risks for early mitigation measures. To support future sustainable and efficient farming and aquaculture, the Food Security Thematic Exploitation Platform (Food Security TEP) addresses the needs of a heterogeneous user community by providing a platform for the efficient use of EO-datasets.
