Abstract 
Food security in mountain communities is closely related to the harsh climate and natural environments that are prone to natural disasters, making it difficult to produce required volumes of agricultural crops and disrupting the delivery of products to remote areas. In such context, the development and introduction of innovative technologies and approaches become especially relevant. The lecture will discuss current status of food security in highland areas of the Gorno-Badakhshan region and the methods to address the problem.
