Collaboration is probably one of the most important success factors for development. However, a combination of both competition and collaboration may be needed for sustainable development, especially under a number of current world challenges. Global climate change and increasing population challenges are forcing us to be more innovative in using scare natural and non-renewable resources much more efficiently and fairly, in order to achieve food and nutrition securities. Our greatest challenge may be to adopt more of the demand side management measures such as shifting diets and reducing food waste. Finally, cases on collaboration between the North and the South on food and nutrition security issues will be presented: (1) horticulture innovation lab and (2) dual/joint master degree in food security and climate change.
