Abstract. The problem of food security is one of the most important global problems have being discussed actively by the international community in recent years. The noted shortfall in the world food production from population growth and a significant number of hungry people in the world cause an urgent need for the integration of various countries and development of the international policy in the field of ensuring global food security. The article considers the role of the European Union in ensuring food security at the international level, solving the problem of accessibility of food for the population in developing countries. The authors analyzed the functioning of the EU Food Found. It is concluded that the European Union plays a key role in solving the problem of poverty in developing countries, providing them with external food aid, and investment in agriculture.

Abstract. The article analyzes the position of the EU on issues of food security and sustainable agricultural development, in particular, covers the main areas of the European research and innovation program Horizon 2020. The analysis of changes in the size of cultivated areas in Russia and the EU countries with the most developed economies has been done in terms of food security and resource conservation principles. It is noted that the high volatility in food markets threatens food security, and the high growth of the stock of wheat prices in the late 2000s did not allow the EU to achieve targets for the biofuels share in the fuel market. The paper studies the relationship between the proportion of cultivated areas under rapeseed used for the biofuels production in the total area of agricultural land and the life quality in the world and the EU. As a result, it has been found that a high proportion of areas under rapeseed (10%) is typical for the developed countries, since the issue of food security is less urgent in these countries.

The most important area of the common agricultural policy of the European Union (EU) is the sustainable development of rural territories. The priority of this issue for EU countries due to the emergence of a number of factors (migration of rural population, low incomes in rural areas, the deterioration of the quality of soils and waters, loss of biodiversity, etc.) that negatively affect the development of rural areas. The article describes the experience of the EU to implement the policy of supporting rural development, as well as changing goals and priorities of this policy within the different programme periods. In 2007-2013, around 50% of the funds supplied by the European agricultural Fund for rural development were aimed at the implementation of agri-ecological measures. Moreover, the largest part in the distribution of funds for the development of rural areas in the programme period 2014-2020 are to France (11.5%), Italy (10.5%), Germany (9.5%), Poland (8.8%), Spain (8.4%), Romania (8.2%). It is emphasized that the policy of development of rural territories in the EU for a long period was aimed at providing sufficient quantities of available food and appropriate living standards of farmers, the development and modernization of rural areas and creation of conditions for agriculture in all regions of the EU. Today the most important priorities of rural development policy in the EU are the protection of the environment and the conservation of biodiversity, combating climate change and increase rural employment. EU experience should be considered the government of the Russian Federation in the development and implementation of policies for sustainable development of rural areas.

Abstract.  In recent years the problem of food security is one of the most important global issues actively discussed by the world community. Increased attention to this issue is primarily due to a growing shortage of food. According to the International agricultural organisation (FAO), the number of hungry people on Earth currently is around 795 million, and that approximately one in ten people. In addition, a significant threat to global food security are of limited water resources, climate change, the growing influence of ecology on productivity, anthropogenic pollution, an increase in the production of transgenic crops etc. In this situation, the issues of ensuring global food security are key priorities of the common agricultural policy (cap) of the European Union. EAP in mno-GOM reflects the leading role of the EU in global food production and trade in agricultural products. Today, the EU accounts for 17% of world food exports; the European Union takes 2nd place as world exporter of dairy products and pork and 3rd place as an exporter of poultry and grain. The focus of modern agricultural policy of the EU is sustainable agricultural growth, food security and nutrition. The article considers the Russian practice and European experience in the field of food security. It is noted that there are both differences and similarities in the approaches of our country and the EU to address issues of food security. Like the EAC of the European Union, the national Doctrine of food security is complex and long-term, includes the key elements of the food and the foreign trade policy, state incentives and regulation of all complex of problems of food security.

Materials and methods: the authors conducted in 2015 a survey of students National Research Mordovia State University on issues of food literacy. The results of the survey were analyzed using the SPSS software: a frequency analysis of respondents’ answers was researched.
Results: low level of food literacy of students was identified; training modules for inclusion in a number of disciplines have been developed; their approbation was carried out and the efficiency of proposed measures was evaluated.
Discussion and Conclusions: The authors draw the conclusion that modern educational programs should correspond to the current trends, among which the key place is occupied by the healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition. The practical significance of the study lies in the possibility of using the developed training modules and programs to improve food literacy in the educational process of higher education institutions.
