The world economy is in turmoil as a result of the global power crisis, rising commodity prices and the return of the inflation volatility just when the COVID-19 pandemic shows signs of recovery and healing. In Malaysia, food is a pleasant topic to its citizens - young and old, it is a symbol of unity and represents its unique identity. Recently, according to the Malaysian Department of Statistics, the food inflation grew by 4.1 percent in April 2022, despite higher percentages faced by other countries. This contributed to higher household expenditures and less savings. In addition, many Malaysians lost their jobs and incomes due to the pandemic, business entities shut down and high logistic costs forced the food price to increase. To understand the root cause and further implications of the food security issue, an attempt is made by searching through the recent academic literature. This is done by going through the e-library resources. The aim is to find from other researchers who have gone through similar experience in the past and learn from them. For this, 18 articles have been selected for synthesis. From the synthesis, a few significant dimensions have been identified. There are similarities and differences between countries or regions involving the causes and the consequences of food insecurity. Many past studies suggested processes or techniques that lead future farmers into the adoption of the climate smart agriculture. The findings from this study will help to educate, spread awareness and act as a point of reference to the public as well as the authority.
