For the long decades, the Malthus idea of food supply became immensely popular when we talk about the food security and famines. Malthus argues that the food security and famines are caused by the lack of food supply. The growth of population creates more food demand; on the other hand, the food supply is limited. The land for agriculture is decreased, as an impact of rapid growth population (Malthus, 1789). The Malthusian tradition emphasizes the drivers of demand. On this perspective, trend in population is the crucial factor of the increase of food demand (Godfray, et. al. 2010, p. 2770-2772). In addition, based on this point of view, the policy instrument proposed is related to the control of the population such as female education and promoting easy access to contraception. Furthermore, they also argue that the problem of food also is caused by the supply side. The decrease of crop yield is the significant factor of the decreases of food supply.
