Cereal food aid deliveries (FAO, tonnes)

Food aid shipments represent a transfer of food commodities from donor to recipient countries on a total-grant basis. Processed and blended cereals are converted into their grain equivalent by applying the conversion factors included in the Rule of Procedures under the 1999 Food Aid Convention to facilitate comparisons between deliveries of different commodities. For cereals, the period refers to July/June, beginning in the year shown.
