Planning for food and nutrition security in Egypt: social, economic and political considerations



Planning for food and nutrition security in Egypt: social, economic and political considerations



Food and Nutrition Bulletin 11(1): 61-64



The study tests a hypothesis for adjusting agricultural production in line with nutritional requirements of the Egyptian population for major food products. Such a strategy would require a structural change in agricultural policies so the quantitative projections are made for the year 2000. The study follows a normative approach using two alternative target levels of food self sufficiency that would imply more achievable production targets.
