Food Policy for Developing Countries: The Role of Government in Global, National and Local Food Systems

Permanent URI for this community

This program aims to strengthen university training in policy analysis for the food systems, with emphasis on developing countries, using a social entrepreneurship approach. The social entrepreneurship approach involves participatory training based on class-room presentations and discussions of cases of real policy issues facing policy-makers for use in undergraduate and graduate teaching. The approach attempts to simulate real policy-making situations within an analytical and conceptual learning environment, employing a hands-on, participatory environment in which the students are taught to be social entrepreneurs.

This website includes a large number of cases, which can be downloaded free of charge by instructors, students and other interested parties worldwide. The cases are organized by sub-topics corresponding to the chapters of the supporting textbook (available for purchase at Cornell University Press and online bookstores). The cases are in PDF format and downloading will require a copy of the Adobe Reader, which can be downloaded free of charge.

Feedback on the cases and their use is welcome at
