(i) In the 16th century price of wool increased. This prompted rich farmers to expand wool production to increase profits. For this purpose they were keen to enclose lands.

(ii) To improve sheep breeding and ensure good feed enclosures become necessary. They therefore began to enclose common land and grow hedges around their holdings to keep out the poor.

(iii) These enclosures were usually created by individual efforts and not supported by the state or church.

(iv) While 16th century enclosures were driven by need to increase wool production, those in the 18th century were a result of need to increase grain production.

(v) Rapid expansion of English population, growing industrialisation and urbanisation led to increase in demand and price of grain.

(vi) By end of 18th century England was at war with France. This disrupted import of food grain supplies. As prices increased further, landowners enclosed lands to bring land under cultivation. Landowners pressurised the Parliament to pass Enclosure Acts.

(vii) By 1850, nearly 6 million hectares of land was enclosed and the British Parliament had passed 4,000 Acts legalising these enclosures.

The British Colonial Government started commercial forestry in India due to following reasons:
(i) By the early 19th century, oak forests in England were disappearing. The colonial government needed timber supply for the Royal navy and railways which were essential for the movement of imperial troops and commercial trade.
(ii) The Colonial Government took over the forests in India and gave vast areas to European planters at cheap rates. These areas were enclosed and planted with tea and coffee.
(iii) The British government was worried about the reckless use of forests by the local people. They needed trees that could provide hard wood and were tall and straight. So particular species like teak and sal trees were promoted by them. Thus, commercial forestry was started by the Britishers and Indian forests Act was passed in 1865.

Food security includes 3 dimensions, a) Availability b) Accessibility and c) Affordability of food. During natural calamities like droughts and floods, food grains production gets effected. Transportation becomes a big hurdle. Due to less food production and supply, demand of food increases resulting in hike in prices. Natural calamities in wide spread areas over a long time leads to famine. We need to import the food from from other countries at a high cost. Those unable to afford the costly food suffer from starvation and malnutrition which affects the health of an individual which further effects his work. This results in an economic slowdown of the country. 

Therefore Food security can be ensured by storing food grains in a proper way without damage and ensure its access to people without leakages so that they can afford the food.
