Food Security: Some Macroeconomic Dimensions

image of The State of Food and Agriculture 1996

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 food security.




1996 will hopefully be remembered as the year when the achievement of world food security was universally recognized as the most pressing challenge facing humankind I am confident that the World food Summit, which will gather this year in Rome representatives of the world’s nations at the highest responsible levels, will serve this purpose.
