A High Price to Pay: The Impact of Rising and Volatile Food Prices on Children’s Nutrition and Food Security
From Save the Children UK
The world is approaching a new norm of high and volatile global food prices. It’s pushing nutritious foods out of the reach of poor families. This report puts forward a series of recommendations to address the impact of high and volatile food prices on poor families:
- Countries with high malnutrition should invest in social protection and build up food stocks
- The EU should drop its biofuel mandate – a key factor pushing up food prices
- Food-exporting countries must coordinate to prevent food-price volatility
