Book Description Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. India is often cited as a land of paradoxes. This is certainly true when it comes to food security. Despite a decline in poverty, close to 30 per cent of its people are food insecure and one-half of its Children malnourished in one way or another. And yet the Country has a Stock of more than 60 million tones of foodgrains stored through government`s procurement. Increased food prices, shrinkage of area under foodgrains and escalating food subsidy are now the major concerns with regard to food security, rather than freedom from hunger. Food security has a number o dimensions that go beyond Supply and demand. Ultimately, the key question is that of the ability to access and effectively utilize food by all people, at all times, to lead a healthy life. This volume discusses food security in India in this broad Framework and compiles the contribution of a good number of scholars in a single volume. It is not only a comprehensive publication, but also one which addresses critical issues and Emerging concerns on food security such as the Demand for and supply of foodgrains in future; Policy response to Domestic Reforms and globalisation; regional Scenario and micro-level Experiences and ongoing perspectives such as the working of the PDS, Nutrition and right to food. The book will be extremely useful for all those concerned with analysis of and the formulation of policy for food security. Printed Pages: 464. Bookseller Inventory # 44862
