The problem of public action in combating persistent undernutrition and endemic deprivation is raised. The argument is made for broadening the attention from food self‐sufficiency to food adequacy, from food adequacy to food entitlements, and from the latter to nutritional and related capabilities, always observing the link between these variables. The role of diversification and the potential process of industrialisation is considered, giving some attention to cash crops.

Keywords:   cash crops, diversification, food adequacy, food entitlements, food self‐sufficiency, industrialisation, nutritional capabilities, persistent undernutrition, public action
