Resumo: This thesis aims to study and analyze the country’s food security situation on a global level, but especially at a regional/local level. The study of this dissertation occurred in two specific regions, the district of Água-Grande and Mé-Zóchi, and allowed a better understanding of these important regions. A sample was selected through a stratified random sampling, with 110 survey equally distributed across different locations in the two districts. In this study, in 2014, it was found that there aren’t any significant differences in diet consumption in the two districts. The calorie intake, on average, in the two districts is about 3484.1 kcal/EH/day, and this value is higher in the district of Água-Grande (3601.26 Kcal/EH/day) compared to the district of Mé-Zóchi (3366.95 kcal/EH/day). Regarding the protein intake, it is also higher in the district of Água-Grande (120 g/EH/day) relative to the district of Mé-Zóchi (102.73 g/EH/day). In terms of quality of life indicators, the families of Mé-Zóchi show better results than the ones from Água-Grande. It is clear that the two regions studied are the most "central" and the most developed of the country, but we can say, in general, that they have good conditions of supply and food availability. In addition to improving the economic conditions (more revenue) it is necessary adequate food policy, distribution, investment in education and the efficient use of existing resources to improve food security.
