Vegan and plant-based diets use less resources. Food (and land) security is becoming a major issue. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that one in nine people are chronically undernourished. With the world’s population expected to increase from 7 billion to reach billion by , one of the most urgent questions we now face is how we, as a species, will.

The historical social–ecological factors influencing SIDS food systems are well documented in this issue by Connell and Campbell () in the context of Pacific island food systems and Saint Ville et al.’s review of agricultural development in the there are important regional and local differences between SIDS, each of these papers identify a similar pattern of development.   It should be possible, but things are looking tricky – especially when we also factor in the climatic instability caused by global warming. These are some of the current threats to food security.
