Hunger is the world's greatest scandal. The purpose with the study is to examine the policy around the global food system and look at how UN and FAO s policies and the LAMTIB Initiative can contribute to sustainable food security and development. As several major development approaches not have enable intended results, it is an increasingly demand for a new development approach, a new type with measurable social and environmental friendly impacts. LAMTIB is aiming to empower people to find a sustainable path out of poverty, and enable them to contribute to the world s food security. The study start with an introduction to the topic, followed by research design with a description of methodology applied to answer the research questions. The theoretical framework presents hunger and development theories supplemented by definitions and concepts relevant for an understanding about the topic, to substantiate and form the contexts around the case. The case, LAMTIB, is a new and different development initiative, used to illustrate alternatives to the major meta-theories and initiatives regarding solutions to food security. Analysing and discussing the global food system with a focus on how global and local actor interact, has resulted in an evaluation of LAMTIB as an alternative approach towards food security.
