SOURCE: Compiled from data provided by donors and the World Food Programme.
1/ Estimated partly on the basis of minimum commitments under the Food Aid Convention of 1995, budgetary allocations and other sources.
2/ To express cereal food aid in grain equivalent, wheat, rice and coarse grains are counted on a one to one basis; for grain products, appropriate conversion factors are used to determine the grain equivalent.
3/ Up to 1994, twelve member countries; from 1995, 15 member countries (including Austria, Finland and Sweden).
4/ Low-income food-deficit countries: for definition see footnote 8/ to table on "Basic facts of the world cereal situation".
