Price Volatility in Food and Agricultural Markets: Policy Responses

 

 

INTRODUCTION


G20 leaders at the Seoul Summit in 2010 requested the FAO, IFAD, IMF, OECD, UNCTAD, WFP, the World Bank and the WTO to work with key stakeholders "to develop options for G20 consideration on how to better mitigate and manage the risks associated with the price volatility of food and other agriculture commodities, without distorting market behaviour, ultimately to protect the most vulnerable."


The preparation of this report, co-ordinated by the FAO and the OECD, has been undertaken by the FAO, IFAD, IMF, OECD, UNCTAD,WFP, the World Bank, the WTO, IFPRI and the UN HLTF.
