Achieving food security in southern Africa: new challenges, new opportunities edited by Lawrence Haddad 1997 ISBN 0 89629 338 1 International Food Policy Research Institute 1200 Seventeenth Street N W Washington, D C 20036-3006 USA
The countries of southern Africa are entering a new era. Democratization, peace, and economic liberalization are important precursors to the kind of economic growth that can reduce poverty and raise incomes. Whether such economic growth does occur will depend, in large measure, on policy choices made in the countries of the region, at both the national and the regional levels. More than at any time in the last 30 years, it will be lack of information and analysis rather than ideology and conflict that will constrain the ability of policy-makers to make choices that bring about poverty reduction and food security, both now and in the future. This book is a collection of chapters and comments drawn from presentations made at a two-day symposium entitled Overcoming the challenge of food insecurity in southern Africa which was held in Johannesburg in June 1996. They have been revised since the symposium in response to editorial comments and external review.
