Food Aid and Nutrition

Publication Date Dec 1, 1980


Four questions should be considered when discussing improving human nutrition through food aid. What is the effect of increased food supplies and the corresponding decline in food prices on food consumption and the nutritional status of low income people? Can market interventions increase the efficiency of a given addition to food supplies for these purposes? What is the effect of reduced prices on food production? And, can market interventions decrease the unfavorable supply effects of consumption-oriented policies? The two consumption questions address the issue of how to utilize a gross increase in food supply to improve quickly nutritional status. The two production questions deal with longrange effects of food aid on total supplies, consumption, and nutrition.
