Upcoming Events

Conference on Food Price Volatility, Food Security and Trade Policy
September 18-19, 2014, World Bank Headquarters, Washington, DC.
Food price volatility raises serious concerns in developing countries, given the large share of income spent on food by the poor, and the importance of agriculture as a source of income for many poor people. It can result in sharp declines in the incomes of poor people, potentially throwing them into poverty, and pose serious threats to their food security. The challenge for policy is to identify policies or combinations of policies that can ensure both the livelihood security and the food security of vulnerable people. Another challenge is to identify policies that are robust to political economy constraints. This two-day conference will explore the trade-offs faced by policy makers in trying achieve food security for their populations. More information on this event coming soon.
