In addition to the usual review of the recent world food and agriculture situation, each issue of The State of Food and Agriculture from 1957 has included one or more special studies of problems of longer-term interest. This year's edition focuses on both agricultural marketing improvement programmes and modernization of institutions to promote development.

However, despite this and the fact that more than half of the world's forests are located in the developing countries, it is evident that this sector is making a much smaller contribution to the improvement of their national economies than its potential warrants.
