About this book

The experiences of a number of writers who have worked on, or studied, poverty alleviation programmes in Asia and Africa are brought together in this book. It focuses on the administration of famine prevention, examining why famine followed drought in Ethiopia and Sudan in 1984 and 1985, and how it has been prevented in India, Bangladesh and Botswana in recent years.
