During the 1980s, Italy expanded its development assistance, soon becoming the fifth largest donor.
Italian development cooperation directed much effort to alleviate hunger, malnutrition and their health consequences.
This paper provides an evaluation of Italy's fight against world hunger considering the political environment in which the policy was conceived and implemented, the organisational structure behind the policy, and the available quantitative indicators of outcome.
The analysis shows how powerful humanitarian drives, supported by inchoate thinking about development problems and priorities, and by institutional and technical confusion, gave rise to development programs below accepted standards.
