Prevalence of food insecurity in a Greenlandic community and the importance of social, economic and environmental stressors / Christina Goldhar, James D. Ford, Lea Berrang-Ford.

Title: Prevalence of food insecurity in a Greenlandic community and the importance of social, economic and environmental stressors / Christina Goldhar, James D. Ford, Lea Berrang-Ford.
Author(s): Goldhar, Christina.
Ford, James D.
Berrang-Ford, Lea.
Date: 2010.
In: International Journal of Circumpolar Health. (2010.), Vol. 69(3) (2010)
Abstract: Investigates prevalence of food insecurity in Qeqertarsuaq, Greenland, with aim of identifying stressors affecting food system. Finds that prevalence of food insecurity (8%) is low, but notes that interviews reveal more nuanced picture, with women, adults aged 55 and above, and non-hunters reporting constrained access to Greenlandic foods. Barriers restricting traditional food access include changing sea-ice conditions, reduced availability of some species, high costs of hunting and purchasing food, and hunting and fishing regulations.
