Front Cover
Edward J. Clay, Olav Stokke
Psychology Press, 1995 - 209 pages
Food aid continues to be a high profile, and perhaps the most controversial form of aid. This volume which concentrates on recent experience, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, provides a stocktaking on the state of the debate and the contribution that economics and other social sciences has made to resolving many of the controversies surrounding food aid. These issues include the gap between the potential and actual contribution of food aid to development, the impact of food aid on food security and agricultural production in Third World countries, European dairy aid to India and possible alternatives to exporting food from developed countries for providing humanitarian assistance to hungry people.
