International Emergency Food Aid: Prepositioning and Procurement by the U.S.


Jonathan Meyers (Editor)

Series: Government Procedures and Operations
BISAC: SOC040000

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) reduces the average delivery time frame for emergency food aid by prepositioning food domestically— that is, in warehouses in the United States—and overseas. This book examines the effects of prepositioning on emergency food aid delivery time frames; the effects of prepositioning on the costs of the food aid; and the extent to which the agency monitors prepositioning to maximize time savings and cost effectiveness.
