Many of the countries in the Southern Africa region have very sketchy trade data, due to disruptions in data collection (caused by war in the case of Mozambique and sanctions-induced secrecy in South Africa, for instance) or weak statistical institutions. While much anecdotal.

Producers in less developed countries may not be able to produce at the lowest possible average cost.

Development economics is a branch of economics which deals with economic aspects of the development process in low income countries

Development economics is a branch of economics which deals with economic aspects of the development process in low income countries. Its focus is not only on methods of promoting economic development, economic growth and structural change but also on improving the potential for the mass of the population, for example, through health, education and workplace conditions, whether through public or private channels.

Similarly, various under-developed countries of the world engaged in the process .

Agriculture is the basic source of food supply of all the countries of the world-whether underdeveloped, developing or even developed. In case the majority of the people have to be kindled with the hopes of prosperity, this can be attained with the help of agricultural progress.

The humanitarian crises which occurred in the recent past demostrate the importance of adequate and informed emergency relief interventions. The study shows that the analysis of causes, costs and trends of disasters and violent conflicts in developing countries is essential for effective emergency relief management. A conceptual framework of the role of information in crises and of decision-making in these emergency situations that integrates economic aspects is developed. A computer-based decision-support system is proposed for use in disaster management. The conceptual considerations are illustrated by two case studies on food emergencies in Angola (conflict and drought) and Mozambique (flood). It is shown that the external conditions of crises call for adaptive and flexible intervention packages instead of predesigned solutions.
