Antiglobalism was on the rise in 2017. What will that mean for food security and nutrition? IFPRI’s 2018 Global Food Policy Report examines the impacts of global integration—including the movement of goods, investment, people, and knowledge—and the threat of current antiglobalization pressures.
This seventh annual report also provides perspective on the major food policy issues, developments, and decisions of 2017 and highlights challenges and opportunities for 2018.
Critical questions addressed in this Report include:
• Can the global food system deliver food security in the face of the radical changes taking place today?
• What is the role of trade in improving food security, nutrition, and sustainability?
• How can international investment best contribute to better food systems?
