International Emergency Food Aid : Prepositioning & Procurement by the U.S. Hardback
Edited by Jonathan Meyers
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 maximise time savings and cost effectiveness.
