Resumo

Death from hunger in the world may overcome the number of deaths in conventional
war. Therefore, food should be considered a National Security core issue of any
country. However, the concept of National Security has evolved in this direction
only with the end of the Cold War and a growing public awareness that global
changes may exacerbate tensions related to food and water shortages. Accordingly,
this paper presents a conceptual evolution of the food issue within the context of
National Security. Brazil’s situation is contrasted to international scenarios outlined
in an attempt to earn greater attention from the Ministry of Defense regarding
Brazilian agriculture due to its important role in the five expressions of national
power.
