The objective of SADCC Agriculture was to provide a framework by which planners can assess available resources and consider two alternative courses of action (strategies) "to promote SADCC's goals of greater food security and self-reliance" (p xiii). The report advanced twenty-three policy recommendations for implementation at both national and regional levels in order to accelerate agricultural development in the region. The focus of the FAO report is on measures to increase the level of food self sufficiency while assuming that people in the SADCC region will have the ability (land, income or jobs) to acquire a calorie adequate diet.
