Postscript - The Fourth Session of the World Food Council, June, 1978

The Report of the Fourth Session of the World Food Council, held in Mexico City in June 1978, became available just as this paper was going to print. The Mexico Declaration of the Council reviewed developments in the world food situation, in particular the implementation of the Manila Communique issued after its Third Session in 1977. As was to be expected, the Mexico Declaration covered rather familiar ground,and the achievements of the World Food Council in the preceding year to which it was able to point were rather limited, the most significant perhaps being the operational establishment of the International Fund for Agricultural Development in 1978, and the Council's stimulation of considerable additional contributions to the International Emergency Reserve.
