Global Food Security and Development Aid

Research output: Book/ReportBook


At the global level, international actors have repeatedly expressed their desire to end hunger and food insecurity. However, more analysis is needed on the link between persistently high levels of global food insecurity and the ever increasing flow of development aid.
Global Food Security and Development Aid investigates the impact that development aid has had on food security in developing countries and includes international case studies on Peru, Ethiopia, India and Vietnam. It examines the effect of development aid in general and the impact of aid divided into different categories based on donor, mechanism and sector to which it is provided. In each examined relationship between aid and food security, particular attention is paid to the potentially intervening role played by the quality of national and/or local governance. The book makes policy recommendations, most importantly that donors should take greater care in considering which types of aid are suitable to which specific countries, localities, and development goals, and account for expected developments in the complex relationship between aid, food security, and governance.
This book will be of considerable interest to students, researchers and policy-makers in the areas of development aid and food security.
