About the product

The study is an important policy-oriented contribution to the analysis and the solution of the problems of food security in a macroeconomic dimension. It draws attention to factors related to the shortcomings of agricultural policies, pricing, marketing, taxation, the neglect of investments in agrotechnology, infrastructure, research and extension. All these indicate in a very lucid way, that there is neither a single nor simple answer to the food security problem.
