Under the strategic direction highlighted in Saudi Vision 2030, protection of the nation’s vital resources is imperative to the creation of an ambitious and effectively governed nation. To support this vision, the Government has prioritized the development of sufficient food reserves, promotion of aquaculture and partnering with countries that have abundant natural resources. The Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations has also partnered with the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture, Saudi Grain Authority and Agricultural Development Fund to augment national capacities for guaranteeing sustainable food security. Under this venture, the entities aim to establish an effective evidence-based food loss and waste reduction programmed and implement a food security early warning system. Moreover, significant strides have been made in the domain of aquaculture owing to an increase in marine fisheries and overall productivity which is expected to augment the sector’s contribution to the national economy.
