Summary and Info
In 1996, the United States and more than 180 world leaders pledged to halve the number of undernourished people globally by 2015 from the 1990 level. The global number has not decreased significantly - remaining at about 850 million in 2001-2003 - and the number in sub-Saharan Africa has increased from about 170 million in 1990-1992 to over 200 million in 2001-2003. On the basis of analysis of U.S. and international agency documents, structured panel discussions with experts and practitioners, and fieldwork in four African countries, the author was asked to examine factors that contribute to persistent food insecurity in sub-Saharan Africa and the extent to which host governments and donors, including the United States, are working toward halving hunger in the region by 2015.
