Many of the Educate A Child (EAC) partnerships implement accelerated education programs. This paper is a basic survey of several selected partner projects designed to situate EAC's work within a broader context. Findings indicate that partners approach accelerated education in very different ways, responding to local contexts in order to serve OOSC needs. Further research is needed to explore the various successes and lessons learned from EAC support to accelerated education.

Foreword from the Chief Executive Officer
The food crisis of 2008 provoked a strong coordinated response from the world community and exposed fundamental problems in the agrofood sector, which continue. Prices remain high in many domestic markets of developing countries, and the risk of future volatility persists. The present economy-wide crisis creates severe economic and social difficulties, which aggravate agricultural problems and the food situation -particularly for least-developed countries and small farmers - and which require stronger actions.
Rome, December 2001
Latest information indicates a slightly
larger global cereal output in 2001, of 1 870 million tonnes (including
rice in milled terms). However, even at this level, production would still
be less than the anticipated utilization requirements in 2001/02, leading
to a significant draw-down of cereal stocks.
While Afghanistan currently faces a grave food supply situation, food emergencies persist in many other countries (see box on page 6).
