A Spatial Analysis of the role of remittances on household food security in Mexico

The diversity in socioeconomic, agro-climate and cultural conditions contribute to the complexity of Mexico’s food system. Thus the study of food security in Mexico requires an understanding of the specific cultural, socioeconomic and environmental context. The goal of this research project is to examine the cultural, socioeconomic and environmental factors (determinants) that contribute to household (HH) food security and explain differences between the neighboring Mexican states of Aguascalientes and Zacatecas.
