Reports the findings of a comprehensive study of the impact of developmental transition on food patterns, nutrition, and health status in South-East Asian countries. Addressed to researchers and policy makers, the study evaluates trends over the past four decades in order to identify problems and causes, predict future trends, and develop an agenda of future priorities and goals. Specific nutrition programmes in individual countries are also critically assessed in a search for approaches that have proved their workability.
