Food for All: Uma Lele

Food for All: International Organizations and the Transformation of Agriculture written by Uma Lele was in news in March 2015. The book will be published by Oxford University Press.

The book surveys the food and agricultural development assistance delivered by five major international organizations since their establishment to gauges their relevance, effectiveness, and impacts in a dramatically changed world.

The five organisations surveyed by the book are:  the World Bank Group, Food and Agriculture Organization, World Food Programme, International Fund for Agricultural Development and Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research.

The book is the result of a meeting convened at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in October 2010 to explore how to address the challenges and opportunities of the global food and agriculture system.

It draws on research, evaluations, interviews, and the authors’ operational experience to assess organizational responses to the changing external and internal environment to address the post 2015 agenda.
