Food Production
 
Global imbalance in production and
distribution of food
Be aware, having covered the previous topic, that there is a global imbalance in the availability of food. Relate this imbalance to economic development levels and to additional factors such as access to guaranteed markets, capital and technology, and government intervention.
Trading patterns in food Describe the main flows of food exports and imports and provide an explanation for them in terms of trading agreements (subsidies, guarantees) and trading barriers (tariffs). A detailed knowledge is not expected, but specific examples to illustrate general statements should be provided.
Food aid Provide a reasoned evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of food aid, including examples and case studies.
