Hunger and Food Security: New Challenges and New Opportunities

Project name/title
Hunger and Food Security: New Challenges and New Opportunities
Year:
2004
Theme:
Poverty, Inequality and Well-being
Abstract:
Millions of people remain desperately food insecure, and over a decade of agricultural-sector reform appears to have achieved little in the way of improving entitlement to food in many countries. This project will investigate why progress in achieving food-security has been disappointing in so many countries (especially in Africa) despite the implementation of extensive donor-inspired reform in agriculture, and the possibility of transferring lessons learned from the successful reduction of hunger in many parts of Asia.
