Education, Poverty, Malnutrition and Famine provides an overview of education response – what it is and how it can be improved in relation to one of the more persistent issues globally. Poverty, famine and/or malnutrition exist in variant degrees among developing and developed nations and the issue figures prominently in international development. This book provides a global overview of education and such issues through case study samples of countries within various regions and offers insights and proposes solutions on how educational response can help alleviate this challenge.

Each chapter contains contemporary questions to encourage active engagement with the material and an annotated list of suggested reading to support further exploration.
