Simply Distribute

Published on 09 March 2009

The number of hungry people in India far outstrips those that live in any other country in the world, says the UN World Food Programme (WFP) report prepared jointly with the M S Swaminathan Research Foundation. Coming down heavily on the targeted public distribution system (TPDS) as a programme that has failed to serve intended goals, the report says it has only led to greater food insecurity for the poor. [...] Present approaches have patently failed in curbing malnutrition. Innovative strategies to tackle the problem must be put in place.
