I know this has been asked in other forms, but I don't see the political side of this addressed. There are so many assumptions necessary to ask the question, it's hard to put in a few words.
Is is possible to end chronic by changing how food aid is delivered so it won't have a negative on farming in areas affected by hunger? Should we instead be encouraging the building of farming infrastructure and improving the treatment of subsistence farmers?
These ideas are expressed in the book "Enough, Why the World's Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty" by Roger Thurow and Scott Kilman. I have lots of other background, but it appears I'm just supposed to ask the question first, not write an essay.
