Food for Thought: How the G20 can help prevent a new food crisis


Food price volatility is a grave threat to people around the world, and it cannot be brought under control without the G20. ActionAid is calling for action from the G20 in two key areas that will allow the people and governments of developing countries to strengthen their food security and limit food price volatility:

  • The G20 must ensure sufficient investment in smallholders and women farmers, the bedrock of rural communities’ food security andlivelihoods.
  • The G20 must also commit to political and material support for robust food reserve systems that ensure food security, support smallholders, and help manage price stability.
