Inducing food insecurity: perspectives on food policies in Eastern and Southern Africa
The Nordic Africa Institute.
1994 (English)Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The scope and context of food security is complex, and it involves macro- and micro-policy perspectives ranging from pricing, distribution, and technology to consumption patterns and food habits. This borevisits the factors which contributed to the decline in food production in eastern and southern Africa and traces them to the food policies of a given country or countries. It also includes chapters dealing with the dynamics of rural or urban food systems, pastoral production, indigenous knowledge and the consequences of technological intervention.
