    Dear Excellency;

    In the prevailing conditions, establishing FSR is an excellent idea, which is highly appreciated. However, for establishing Food Security Reserves (FSR), conversations, dialogue and policies are not sufficient. For addressing future threats like, erratic weather conditions, wind, hailstorm, rainfall, flood and natural disasters, some practical steps should be taken immediately so that in the new scenario food security should be ensured. Here I want to share some suggestions:

    1. OIC countries, having better economic conditions may come forward and to establish a “Revolving Fund”. Other participating countries may replenish that “Revolving Fund” through their assigned share.
    2. Revolving Fund may exclusively be used for the construction of silos and purchase of food produce and commodities, at the national and regional levels. Because storage facilities are not sufficient to maintain the strategic reserves. In Pakistan the public sector could only hold 20-25% their stock in the storage, whereas the rest of quantity remained open in the field.
    3. Food reserves should be replenished on annual basis and the assigned quantity of carry-forward stock may be used for the vulnerable segments of the country.
