Complex issues made clear

Food security might be a complex issue, explaining the ins and outs of food security does not need to be complex. The Agripromo dossier on food security in Africa, proves this quite clearly. It is a collection of sheets, each dealing with a specific sub theme, such as history of food security, trends in the world s food situation, the role of policies, effects of war, of farmers and their organisations. As one goes along, the sheets become more technical and practical, addressing questions on how to improve nutrition, promote the storage of food stuffs and how to assess food situation at local level. The sheets are clearly written and well illustrated with tables and cartoons. Perfect material for educators, such as extension workers, teachers and general development workers. This is the maiden English edition of the Development dossiers Agripromo, which are also being published in French. The dossiers each focus on a single issue, such as development financing or natural resources management. Look forward to the next ones! Food security in Africa: a development challenge Dossier Agripromo, INADES-Formation CTA - Solagral, 2001. 102 pp. ISSN 1018 8568 CTA number 1064, 20 credit points.
