Meeting Food Aid and Price Support Objectives through Local Grain Purchase: A Review of the 1996 Experience in Ethiopia

The purpose of this paper is to identify factors that can improve the ability of future local purchase activities to achieve a range of national food policy objectives including price stabilization for farmers, promoting the development of a competitive and low-cost food marketing system, and procuring food aid resources in a cost-effective manner. The analysis of the 1996 Ethiopia experience provides potentially valuable lessons for the design of future local purchase programs throughout Africa.
