About Global Food And Agricultural Institutions

Product description This pioneering text brings together for the first time the global institutions on the front line of the campaign against hunger and poverty. The institutions examined in this book – the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the World Bank, the World Food Programme (WFP) and the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) – play important roles in achieving and maintaining world food security, which is essential for human existence, economic and social development and world peace. By analyzing the origins, functions, successes and difficulties of these global institutions, Shaw highlights the continuing relevance of these bodies in their quest to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. In the light of the current world food crisis, this book provides a particularly pertinent commentary on a highly topical issue that is never far from the media spotlight. This book is essential reading for all students, academics and readers with an interest in international organisations, agricultural development and economic and humanitarian affairs About the Author D. John Shaw served for over thirty years with the United Nations World Food Programme at its headquarters in Rome, Italy, latterly as its Economic Adviser and Chief of WFP's Policy Affairs Service. He was also a consultant for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Bank. His work brought him into close contact with the policies and work of the global food and agricultural institutions covered in this book. Previously, from post-graduate studies in Agricultural Economic at Oxford University, he spent eight years as Senior Lecturer in Rural Economy at the University of Khartoum, Sudan and was a Fellow in Agricultural Economics and founder member of the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, UK. He has also served as a consultant to the Commonwealth Secretariat and is currently on the International Editorial Board of the journal Food Policy.
