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 sustainable development and natural resources management.

Global economic growth continued in 1988 for the sixth consecutive year, but was sustained mainly by growth in the industrialized countries and in Asia. Serious problems remained, however, in many developing countries, especially in Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean, where investment rates remained depressed and net capital outflow unabated.
