Chatham House

Food Security 2010

Start Date:06 Dec 10 End Date:07 Dec 10

How can governments and the private sector work together to ensure a secure and sustainable balance between food supply and demand?

Volatility in food and agricultural commodities prices appears to have become a permanent feature of global markets. The relative stability of the past few decades has been broken, largely through increased consumer demand.

This conference will gather business leaders and representatives from governments, multilateral agencies, international and non-governmental organizations to discuss the way forward in establishing a secure and sustainable balance between supply and demand. Questions to be discussed include:

What impact do distortions in the market, for example subsidies, protectionism, food aid etc, have on food availability?
Is food distribution sufficiently prioritized within infrastructure plans?
From local to global: how effective are market information systems?
What role can Big Food companies play in sustainable food chains?
What can be done to ensure the dissemination and adoption of good farming practices?

For further information, please send an enquiry.
