Information Notes on the Food Situation (FOSIN)

 

   

Since July 2006, the RPCA network produces a regular analytical information tool - the Food Security Information Note. Building on contributions from network members, it offers a monthly brief overview of the agricultural and food situation. While presenting the main trends and food security issues, it also proposes measures to be taken to facilitate food access of the most vulnerable populations. A selection of information sources and reference documents is proposed for further reading.
