Dimensions of need: an atlas of food and agriculture edited by Tony Loftas 1995 127pp ISBN 92 5 103737 X FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, ITALY
What is a healthy diet and just how many of the 5,700 million people in the world have one? What do they eat and how is it produced? Has food production risen and can it keep on doing so? Is there enough land and water to support the world's increasing population and how must agriculture adapt to provide sustainable food security for everyone into the twenty-first century? Dimensions of need is published to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Its easy-to-read text, complemented by more than 600 photographs, maps, charts and diagrams, reviews the state of the world's food resources, its agriculture, forests and fisheries, and describes the kinds of action being taken to conquer hunger while protecting and conserving the planet's natural resources and environment.
