The third volume elucidates endemic hunger, illustrating the performances of various actions, and sifting the lessons for public policy which aim to eliminate persistent hunger. There are two different strategies — growth-mediated security and support-led security — which are used eradicate endemic hunger, and while there is a real contrast between the strategies, the extensive use of public support measures plays a crucial role in both instances. According to this volume, poor countries can afford extensive public support systems either by using labour intensive measures which make them cheaper, or by shifting resources employed to provide expensive services to a few to provide minimal basic services for all.
