World Food Aid Needs and AvailabilitiesEntry ID: USDA0508
Abstract: "World Food Aid Needs and Availabilities" is a full-text report
that is a study of world food aid needs, defined as amount of
grain needed to fill the gap between what a country can produce
plus its financial capacity to import commercially, and a
targeted consumption level including emergency needs. Factors
considered include supply and demand, prices and trade, food
... production, yields, fertilizer use, land constraints, water and
irrigation,population growth, food consumption and nutrition,
domestic policies, and foreign exchange availabilities.
