During the inauguration of a series of conferences for the Degree in Nutrition of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) Ranulfo Pérez Garcés, director of the Amecameca campus, highlighted the vulnerability of a large segment of the population that lacks food security.

According to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) at least 9.1 per cent of the adults in the State of Mexico have lacked foodstuffs due to economic circumstances, while 6.4 per cent of children under 18 have missed a meal a day  for the same reasons.

In order to tackle these issues, UAEM organized a series of conferences that deal with topics pertaining to food security, climate change, geo-technologies, edible insects, and greenhouses. A local example of the use of these technologies was the case-study of the municipalities of Ecatzingo, Tenango del Aire y Tepelixpa, which present the lowest percentage of foodstuff scarcity.

On the other hand, the municipalities of Juchitepec and Tlamanalco report the highest percentage of children and adults who only have two meals per day. To tackle these issues a multidisciplinary team of academics is currently working on development model for territorial sustainability.
