    Abstract

    This paper discusses the implementation of the provision of school meals in Kodungallur in Kerala, India as a case of how vertical inter-governmental synergies and horizontal local linkages are brought together in programme design and implementation. The empirical data were collected for a larger cross-national study looking into homegrown school feeding undertaken by Morgan et al commissioned by the World Food Programme. The re-interpretation herein highlights aspects of subsidiarity and its sector-specific policy translation that allows the tackling of food security as it pertains to school children in one municipality in India. The key argument advanced is the relevance of action at multiple levels to allow for what is termed as ‘policy build-up’ so as to achieve all-round effectiveness.Cet article étudie comment les synergies inter-gouvernementales verticales et les relations locales horizontales permettent la définition et la mise en oeuvre de programmes au travers du cas de l'implantation d'une cantine à Kodungallur, au Kerala, en Inde. Les données empiriques furent collectées par Morgan et al pour une étude à l'échelon national commissionnée par le Programme Alimentaire Mondial (PAM) d'un programme d'alimentation scolaire maison. La présente analyse fait ressortir des aspects de subsidiarité et leur traduction en mesures spécifiques à ce secteur qui permettent de s'attaquer au problème de la sécurité alimentaire qui concerne les élèves d'une municipalité indienne. La pertinence de l'action à des niveaux multiples dans la construction de la politique à mettre en oeuvre constitue l'élément clé pour permettre la plus grande efficacité possible.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 419–434. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.14; published online 23 April 2009
