  • Summary

Communities across the world have consumed foods from millet “ as a traditional food and source of nutrition “ for generations. However, with changes in lifestyle and dietary habits, millet has lost its prominence, making many countries dependent on import-driven cereals like rice, wheat, and maize. Despite the potential to address food and nutritional security, millet production has declined. Millet is a climate-resilient crop that have been identified as an alternative to potential cereals in the hilly regions of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region in addressing food and nutrition security, especially under the current climate change scenarios. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has designated the year 2023 as the International Year of Millets.
