In the last quarter of 1997, the European Commission and CTA held a series of seminars of food security specialists from more than 20 ACP countries, international organisations and European bodies. The meetings brought together senior civil servants and representatives of regional organisations and NGOs from ACP countries, to discuss aspects of EU food security reforms relating to specific national and regional issues. This co-publication presents the outcome of the discussions and key recommendations of three seminars. The main sections of the report cover the evolving perceptions of food security (see also Spore 77), socio-economic development in ACP countries and the role of the agricultural sector in food security, the new policy of the EC and the ACP partners' reaction to it. It presents a complex web of issues in a clear and concise manner, and will be of use to policy makers and decision takers in particular.
