Effects of Food Aid in Egypt

Auther : Abdul-Rahman Zaki Ibrahim

Food aid can be both a benefit and a bane. The success of food aid as a form of economic aid depends on the mode of utilization and the particular circumstances of the situation. Food aid may be utilized as a replacement for food imports in order to use foreign currency to import capital goods. In this case, food aid is an additional resource for accelerating economic development. On the other hand, food aid may lead to a decrease in the price of food crops in the recipient country. This weakens the cultivators’ incentives to expand production, and hence the available food resources diminish.

The most important of these considerations is that food aid defers the necessary decisions to modernize the home agriculture and raise the level of productivity. Therefore, food aid may lead to a false sense of security and the cessation of food aid will hinder the development process. Thus food aid makes the recipient country appear a paradise of mythos.
