This report concerns an ODA Advisory and Support Services funded visit to UNDP HQ undertaken by an NRI food security specialist and economist in April 1996. The purpose of the visit was to develop a framework for possible ODA support for the development of a strategy for handling food security issues within UNDP programmes. The consultants were asked to: (a) review UNDP's role in agriculture and food security, taking account of its mandate, its relationship to other international agencies, its experience, and existing strategies; (b) agree with UNDP staff clear statements of goal, purpose, strategies and output, together with key assumptions; and (c) identify human resource, information and dissemination needs.
