This introduction to global food security issues provides an analysis of production and supply systems, factors contributing to domestic production growth and variability, the relationship between the macro-economic environment and food security, and options for the future. The authors illustrate how a micro-economic grassroots approach, rooted in the self-help capabilities of the poor, is not only feasible, but is in fact a productive means of enhancing food security. The text contains charts and tables and a food security index that ranks developing countries in terms of their vulnerability to hunger.
