Open Letter to the U.S. Government About the Quality of Food Aid

by Monicac — last modified Oct 19, 2010 09:16 AM

On the eve of World Food Day 2010, I write on behalf of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) to urge the U.S. to stop supplying nutritionally substandard food to malnourished children in developing countries.

The U.S. is by far the world’s largest food assistance donor, accounting for more than half of global food aid in 2009. Its policies and practices are enormously influential in assuring that the right foods reach the right people at the right time. The main beneficiaries of food assistance are primarily young children and women. Yet the fortified foods in U.S. food assistance, including corn soya blend (CSB) and other fortified blended flours (FBF), are of an inappropriate nutritional composition for the primary target beneficiaries—particularly young children

Totally agree Eddie, as we have all seen many times, people seem<a href=""> unblae</a> to seperate what is actually required from the bolt on goodies. I havent worked in the Local Government sector, so cant comment directly, but believe that this attitude is commonplace throughout anyone implementing CMS or any other software package.As opposed to the Red Pen, I have applied the MoSCoW method to requirements gathering. Much like your Red Pen, this entails categorising Must, Could, Should and Wont haves, against each requirement. Doing it once you get a certain reduction, but strangely if you do it a 2nd and 3rd time, more of the Musts Haves get downgraded getting you to a core set of deliverables.Its not the most efficient method, much better to know from the outset, but it works.That said, it will only work from within the organisation. When responding to a Tender Document everything is a Must Have and if you dont respond in that fashion then you wont get the work, which brings us nicely back to the point of your article !!!

Here is a note from a consultant hlneipg with this CMS project, we are experiencing the same issue with Plone I never really got as far as implementing the State template in Joomla the problems I was having was that the templates I started with only showed the second level navigation for the selected top menu navigation item, whereas the state template shows all first and second navigation (although the secondary navigation is only shown if hovering on the tabs).I would suspect that one could hack the main_menu module in Joomla directly without doing it the preferred way' of overriding the OUTPUT from the main_menu module with Javascript/CSS. If one could get the main_menu module in Joomla to output the entire first and secondary navigation, I would think it pretty easy to put in a PHP if statement to place the proper tags around the main tabs but not the secondary navigation
