Food security : indicators, measurement, and the impact of trade openness ( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 248 libraries worldwide
"What are the implications of the WTO's Agreement on Agriculture for food security in poor countries? Are economic reforms and high growth rates in some countries protecting the well-being of the poor by improving the status of nutrition? Are we measuring hunger adequately? Do we need new tools and indicators? Does women's socio-economic status matter for child-health? Are targeted programmes successful in identifying and helping the truly needy? Despite the scale of human suffering inflicted by malnutrition, the fight against world hunger has recently been overshadowed by the campaign to end poverty. The emergence of the WTO and the freeing of agricultural trade, for example, have serious implications for hunger and food security in many countries, yet this is an area that is relatively understudied. This book aims to fill this gap by providing a significant collection of essays from mainstream academia and prominent international organizations working for food security. Examining food security across regions, the book tackles food security at three distinct levels-national, household, and individual. Other topics included are: attempts to improve measurement tools; the applications of existing tools for empirical analysis using household data, and; the impact of trade openness on national food security."--Jacket.

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 233 libraries worldwide
These are turbulent times for the international trading community, the WTO in particular. Although Cancun failed, * Can the WTO still reassert its development-credibility by ensuring that Doha truly becomes the Development Round? * What should the negotiating strategy of the developing countries be? * Will the political constituencies in the OECD allow reform of their domestic policies that benefit the developing countries? * How big are the regional disparities in the effects of agricultural trade reform in the developing countries? * Are the Preferential Trading Agreements doing enough for the least developed countries? * How much more can the US, the EU and Japan do to increase developing countries' exports? These and other vital questions are addressed in this volume which has been prepared within the UNU/WIDER project on The Impact of the WTO Regime on Developing Countries.
Food insecurity, vulnerability and human rights failure ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
Do we have a right to food? The significance of a human rights approach, and the way in which it translates to gender considerations, with links to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, agricultural productivity and the environment, adds a new dimension to the problem of world hunger. By exploring these approaches to hunger this volume is novel in its shift away from rather obvious research on macro food availability to more composite dimensions cutting across economics, sociology, law and politics. With regional experiences and country case studies this constitutes an invaluable collection for researchers and activists trying to make a difference.
