This book was published in Danish in 1998 by Danida, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Denmark. This revised and translated version is published by IFPRI, in collaboration with the nine other research centers listed above.

The International Food Policy Research Institute was established in 1975 to identify and analyze alternative national and international strategies and policies for meeting food needs of the developing world on a sustainable basis, with particular emphasis on low-income countries and on the poorer groups in those countries. IFPRI is a member of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, an association of 16 international research centers, and receives support from a number of governments, multilateral organizations, foundations, and other sources. All of the other research centers that contributed to this volume are members of the CGIAR system, with the exception of ICIPE (International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology).
