This study analyses the impact of food aid on production in receiving countries and on commercial import both on aggregate, and for the EU and the US food aid separately. It has often been claimed that there is a substantial risk that inflows of free food will negatively affect the incentives to maintain local production levels and in practice generate a dependency on food aid.

According to the results of this study, emergency food aid has no significant impact on either current or future levels of local production or commercial imports.
