[Extract] Chapters 4-8 of this book examined the food security practices of some countries in Asia. These countries are different in various aspects, such as political institutions, degree of corruption, population density, per capita arable land, level of income, and climatic conditions. Their levels of food security have also been divergent, high in some, while low in others. In this chapter, we highlight and compare the similarities and differences in their food security practices, and the lessons and experiences drawn from their quests for improved food security.
