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 livestock production.



World review

The tenacious recession which has plagued the world economy for the past two years provides a sombre background to an assessment of the state of food and agriculture for 1982. It has underlined the inescapable economic interdependence of developed and developing nations and the links between agriculture and the rest of the economy. Fortunately, the prospects for 1983 are for a resumption of economic growth.
