International trade: It is very difficult to state that Food security implies the provision of safe, nutritious, and quantitatively and qualitatively adequate food, as well as access to it by all people. This holds true for climate change adaptation - where farmers, for example, must plan under increasing variability and longer-term uncertainty - as well as for disaster risk management - where rapid transmission of information on extreme weather events can be the difference between life and death. A Random Effects Generalized Least Squares (GLS) regression was employed for analysis. Cooperative society is among the major determinant of household food security in the study areas (P<0.05).

However, the food consumption expenditure and the probability of food security reach diminishing return at 6 kert (1.5 ha) and 7 kert (1.75 ha), respectively. The rise of the ‘resilience’ agenda in the context of climate and development has led to a push for more integrated approaches to planning for and responding to climate change, DRM, and broader development challenges.

Future interventions aiming at ensuring food security should pay attention to seasonality and mechanisms of improving diversified food production and household income as well as expanding education opportunities and access to cooperatives, infrastructure (mobile telephone) and sanitation.

Most beneficiaries are employed in labor-intensive public works for six months per year with a small fraction of beneficiaries (approximately 15 percent) receiving unconditional payments (Berhane et al., 2014; Berhane et al., 2020). Considerable seasonal variation was also found in energy sources in rural areas, less so in urban areas. Food insecurity as a consequence of drought is the most common environmental risk threatening farmers in South East Asia and Sub Saharan African.
