Abstract

This paper presents an analysis on the potential self-sufficiency of energy based food in Sabah, Malaysia. Data set was established from literature and statistical data, and collected data was analyzed for visualizing the ratio of self-sufficiency of energy-based food, and some scenarios were tested for future forecast. Results obtained indicated that its ratio was 46% in 2010, and it was clear that population growth and the decrease of the area designated for food production had an impact on food self-sufficiency. Thus, sustainable land management for food self-sufficiency became the top agenda item in Sabah. Land for food production should be strictly protected using natural function, and also it was established that a new relationship between city and rural area should be established such as materials recycling, ecotourism, and renewable energy production in rural, which contributes to food self-sufficiency in Sabah. 

KeywordsFood supply, Food Security, Food Self-suffiency, Sabah.
