The study aims to identify the key elements of the Arab food security gap, and analyses the indicators of treatment, which repeatedly re-focus on agricultural development and related policies. The current focus in the development of Arab agricultural capacity is on experience of Iraq and Algeria being resource-rich economies and poor in food production.The Arab region is suffering decades of serious food dependency and rely on a deepening imports despite the abundance of material, financial and water resources, required to catch self-sufficiency. It assumes that the problem is institutional one rather than real development. It suggests scurrying to address the root of the problem on the relationships that can be estimated from a mathematical model for investment in technical sectors for quench, irrigation, and mass production agricultural lands.
