Based on rigorous research, the Global Food Policy Report is designed specifically to provide an overview of 2011 and an outlook for 2012 for non-technical audiences. For the international community, the 2011 Global Food Policy Report makes a number of specific recommendations:
- The G20 should do more to reduce competition between biofuel and food production and discourage trade restrictions that exacerbate price swings.
- The international community should consolidate global and regional agricultural growth strategies and create or strengthen the institutions needed to make these strategies work.
- Rio+20 conference participants should integrate economic, social, and environmental sustainability in their discussions and commit to concrete action on long-term development challenges, including poor nutrition, degraded soils, and scarce water.
- A broad intersectoral coalition should work together to address nutrition, food, and health issues.
