State of Food and Agriculture

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has released the 2006 report State of Food and Agriculture. This report examines food aid relief, for an overview check out the press release on this from the United Nations. The report's main conclusions are that while food aid saves lives, there are real economic costs to the recipients and that other models for aid should be examined.
