The globe has a serious problem with food insecurity. Every level, from people to nations, is concerned about it. At its most fundamental, ensuring food security means upholding everyone's right to eat. Food security is a problem that falls under the broader umbrella of the human right to food, but it also has more direct connections to commerce, economic growth, and agricultural policy. Given that there is sufficient food production worldwide, the issue of global food insecurity might be viewed as a result of market failure. However, intellectual property rights help and support this type of market failure. IPRs have grown in significance during the last two decades in a variety of industries. This includes, for example, agricultural biotechnology, where IPRs act as a fundamental inducement for the growth of the private sector. Given the tight relationship between agriculture and food security, the expansion of IPRs to this sector is particularly important. In other words, the fulfilment of fundamental food needs is intimately related to the adoption of IPRs in agriculture. In this study, the author focuses on the unique connection between intellectual property rights and food security (IPR) and, the topic of food security is examined only in terms of intellectual property.
