Despite continuing food crises in the developing world, agricultural development assistance from major governments and international institutions has declined since the early 1980s. Aid to Agriculture: Reversing the Decline, an IFPRI Food Policy Report by Joachim von Braun, Raymond F. Hopkins, Detlev Puetz, and Rajul Pandya-Lorch, addresses the economic, political, and bureaucratic causes of this downward trend and the reasons why reversing this trend is of critical importance for many of the world's poorest countries.
