Presentation on the world food situation to the CGIAR meeting in November 1984 by the Director of IFPRI, John Mellor. Such a presentation was recommended by the first external review of IFPRI to be made every other year. Mellor focused on three issues: the shift of concern about food production from Asia to Africa; the growth in food exports from the developed countries; and the continued existence of massive malnutrition and poverty, particularly in Asia, in the face of major improvements in food production growth rates.
