Dialogue on Securing Food in Uncertain Markets: Challenges for Poor, Net Food-Importing Countries
23rd March 2012 • Co-organised with Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
In recent years, high and volatile food prices have compounded pre-existing difficulties faced by some of the world’s poorest net food-importing countries, and exacerbated the challenge of safeguarding the food security of their citizens. Trade-related policies, rules and facilities in areas ranging from export restrictions, financing and food aid through to domestic support programmes and food stocks all influence the extent to which governments are able to overcome these problems. This dialogue will be an opportunity for negotiators, policy-makers and experts to discuss some of these issues, with a view to identifying remedial actions.
