Food security is an increasing concern among tertiary students in Kota Kinabalu during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A report released by the Youth-PREP Centre (YPC) today revealed that 62% of the 110 students surveyed in a research about â€œUrban Poverty Among Youth in Kota Kinabalu'' have had to reduce their daily food intake in order to financially sustain themselves during this pandemic. The research, which aims to provide a baseline understanding of how youths may experience urban poverty, was participated by students in their third or final year of tertiary education at a private or public institution. Notably, the survey was centered on capturing the perspectives of youth in relation to urban poverty based on the knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) model. The three main dimensions of poverty that were investigated in this study were â€˜Powerâ€™, â€˜Moneyâ€™ and â€˜Accessâ€™. YPC calls upon the Government, private sectors, academic institutions and civil societies to uphold their collective responsibility of formulating a comprehensive strategy to address urban poverty.
