Regional studies have also been completed such as Asian Economic Crisis and the Long-Term Global Food Situation (Rosegrant and Ringler 2000) and Transforming the Rural Asian Economy: the Unfinished Revolution (Rosegrant and Hazell 2000). These studies are a response to the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s and analyzed the impact of this crisis on future developments in food supply, demand and prices for that region. Also, as part of the 2020 Vision for Food, Agriculture, and the Environment Initiative IMPACT was used for looking at current issues in both Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
