MANAGEMENT ISSUES DURING CURRENT FOOD CRISIS AND THEIR IMPACT ON PAKISTANI AGRICULTURE SECTOR

M. Faheem, A. Usman

CASE - Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering (PAKISTAN)
Current food crisis in Pakistan has adversely undermined living standard of people of Pakistan. Recently, 100- 200 percent inflation in food prices especially in Pakistan has drawn attention of all policy makers. This paper broadly describes the management issues which inflicted their impact on current food crisis in Pakistan thereby deteriorating the life style of Pakistani society.
Poor quality inculcates ineffective or poor processes, artificial deficiency in food supply through hording, etc. Poor management translates in terms of so many socio-economic factors and administrative issues which may include ineffective Water Management & Distribution System, Obsolete irrigation system, Sub standard Pesticides, Low Value fertilizers, Inappropriate Soil Analysis, Low Level of Mechanization, Centuries old Agricultural practices, delayed provision of loans, power outage and shortage, Removal of Subsidies on Input, Delayed Agricultural Decisions, Poor Governance leading to Hoarding, Poor Market Need Analysis, Data Reliability and Integrity, Sub Standard Seeds, Role of Middle Man, Low Literacy Level, Disproportionate Returns and/or Unreliable Forecast of Production, Market and Weather. Managing these factors efficiently leads to a sustained, ensured and affordable provision of food items in all corners in the country.
Poor management of these factors collectively contributes to food inflation resulting in country wide poverty. Social translation of poor management includes psychological pressures, decline in standard of living, lawlessness, use of rising economic imbalance leading to more social disintegration. The paper therefore explains all these linkages conceptually and theoretically.
