The resulting resources should support an employment oriented development strategy promoting food production growth. As incomes of the poor rise, food demand will increase and the food aid gap may widen. This should not be confused with similar effects produced by agricultural neglect. This strategy needs long-term food aid commitments and a safety net against food aid cuts. Project, emergency and adjustment food aid can be integrated into this strategy
