Food aid and food security. Contributions of the World Food Programme of the United Nations to solving the hunger crises



Food aid and food security. Contributions of the World Food Programme of the United Nations to solving the hunger crises



Geographische Rundschau 44(2): 110-114

Food aid (over $3000 million per year) accounts for about 7%-10% of official development aid and about 55%-60% of it goes to governments of developing countries as general budgetary aid rather than directly to the poor or hungry.
