Die Nahrungsmittelkrise. Chance oder Krise der Welternährungsorganisation?
Competitive pressure, inefficiency and failing support from the part of member states have brought the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization FAO in a deep crisis. The present article discusses whether the FAO has managed the crisis successfully by strengthening its position under the wings of divers institutions involved in food policies. The article presents the central tasks, problems and strategies that the organization arrived at, and concludes that the FAO does not merit further confidence. However, a possibility out of the crisis is offered by placing the comparative advantages at central stage, above all its wide legitimate basis.
