NOTICE: The More and Better Food Demonstration Project in Egypt, which is the subject of this report, is the product of multidisciplinary and multi-institutional collaboration among many Egyptian workers and institutions, with the National Research Centre (Dokki, Cairo) taking the leadership role. The project was a major component of the Applied Science and Technology Research Program, a collaborative activity in science and technology for development supported by the Government of Egypt and the United States Agency for International Development during the years 1977-1986.

The report is a case study of agricultural, nutrition, and health interventions in three Egyptian villages; it was written to inform an interested audience of development specialists, administrators, and others concerned with the role of science and technology in socioeconomic development. The report is a product of the authors and does not necessarily represent the opinions of the sponsors or of the collaborating institutions.

The U.S. National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council (NAS/NRC) was contracted by the Agency for International Development to assist the National Research Centre. Funding for the NAS/NRC was provided under AID Contract NEB-0016-C-00-1058-00.
