This chapter studies how the simultaneous (and often conflicting) objectives of non‐exclusion and targeting can be pursued with varying emphasis, depending on the selection procedure adopted. It then explores some of the selection mechanisms, highlighting the limits of nutritional status as a basic selection criterion. The merits and demerits of employment provision as an entitlement protection system are analysed. Finally, there are some general remarks on effective famine prevention, emphasising the role of mixed systems.

Keywords:   employment provision, entitlement protection, famine, famine prevention, mixed systems, non‐exclusion, nutritional status, selection mechanisms, targeting
