This book is by Mohiuddin Alamgir and Poonam Arora with an introduction by Idriss Jazairy. This book from IFAD is an in-depth user-friendly study of global food security, focused at the household level, which includes dozens of revealing figures, charts and tables. 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.
