In resolutions 3201 (S-VI) and 3202 (S-VI), the United Nations General Assembly adopted, during its Sixth Special Session held in May 1974, a declaration and Programme of Action on the establishment of a New International Economic Order whereby all efforts should be made by the international community to speed up development. These resolutions stress the need for developing countries to use appropriate technologies to promote the production and use of local raw materials in their development efforts. From its inception, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) has recognized the primary role that food processing played in the achievement of food self-sufficiency. The planning, formulation and implementation of national composite flour programmes addresses this concern and provides the justification for drafting this model pre-feasibility study.
