Food security and food assistance programs

Christopher Barrett ()

Chapter 40 in Handbook of Agricultural Economics, 2002, vol. 2, Part 2, pp 2103-2190 from Elsevier

Abstract: Widespread hunger and malnutrition persist today despite considerable growth in per capita food availability. This has prompted an evolving conceptualization of food security and of mechanisms to attain and maintain food security. This chapter discusses both food security and food assistance programs designed to respond to the threat of food insecurity.
