Abstract: The nexus of food security with sustainable forest development and rural development is a topical issue. Food availability is related to production, which is a land use activity. In Nigeria, where population density is high coupled with the global climate constrain, the blending and spatial planning of different and changing land uses, including legislation thereof are crucial policy issues, which involve various stakeholder. Thus, a synergy of various interests and hence system thinking approach is imperative. Systems’ thinking is in particular suitable for studying complex dynamic issues that have to do with human behaviour for example. Traditional analysis focuses on the separating the individual pieces of what is being studied. System thinking, in contrast, focus on how the thing being studied interact with the other constituents of the system of which it is a part. This paper examines the impact of global climate change on sustainable food production with a view to evolving mitigation to the anthropogenic impacts.
