Book Description
Despite the Green Revolution`s dramatic success in increasing South Asia`s agricultural production, almost one quarter of the region`s population remains undernourished. The 2007-8 food price spike has further aggravated this problem. In the face of both ongoing and new challenges to food security, Liberalizing Foodgrains Markets identifies policies for countering undernourishment in the region. The essays place contemporary food security policies in historical perspective, examining the divergent approaches to food security adopted in the past by Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. They analyse policies on the production, stocks, trade, and consumption of various foodgrains-rice in Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, and rice and wheat in India and Pakistan-and draw lessons for South Asia as a region.
