Excerpt
Excerpt: Does better nutritional status contribute to faster economic growth? If it does, what is the magnitude and persistence of this effect? These two questions are the paramount issues of this project. If indeed the answer is yes and the effect is appreciable, then food aid to those lowincome food-deficit countries (LIFDCs) and least developing countries (LDCs) will not only improve the human welfare in the regions but also enhance economic growth so that they can eventually grow out of poverty. Nutrition is the fundamental condition for human welfare. Recently, food sufficiency and easy access to food are considered as a basic human right. Good nutrition is an investment in human and social capital; solid establishment of human capital is a key determinant of household and community, which in turn builds a basis for development.
