2013 Global Food Policy Report

Publisher Description

IFPRI’s flagship report examines the major food policy issues, developments, and decisions of 2013. It puts into perspective the year’s food policy successes and setbacks, and suggests how to advance policies that will improve the food situation for poor people in developing countries.


Contributions by IFPRI researchers and other leading food policy experts draw on rigorous research and consider a wide range of crucial questions:


• What is the direction of the global development agenda as the world approaches the 2015 deadline of the Millennium Development Goals?

• What are the best policies and investments to ensure we can end hunger and undernutrition by 2025?

• How effective will India’s landmark National Food Security Act be in ensuring access to adequate food at affordable prices?

• What policies, investments, and technologies will do most to sustainably increase agricultural productivity, to link smallholder farmers to markets, and to ensure that their products are safe and nutritious?

• How do we get the politics of nutrition right, to create an environment in which policies promote food and nutrition security?

• What have been the major developments in regions and countries where poor and hungry people reside?


The 2013 Global Food Policy Report includes data for several key indicators related to food policy, including country-level data on hunger, agricultural research spending, and food policy research capacity. It also features illustrative figures, tables, and a timeline of food policy issues, actions, and events in 2013.
