National food policies will more and more be affected by factors external to the nation as the total world-food-population problem becomes influenced by a greater number of variables. How, then, do nations cope with the problem of getting an adequate quantity and quality of food products consumed by people? While political leaders must deal with national policies and strategies, agricultural experts must bring policies down to the level of the ordinary citizen. They must make things happen, often in the face of inadequate political directives and faulty administrative structures.
