2012 Global Food Policy Report

The 2012 Global Food Policy Report by the International Food Policy Research Institute reviews food policy developments and trends with chapter-by-chapter discussions of major food policy developments, high-quality research, and perspectives of farmers from around the world. It also charts the path forward with a call to action on gender rights, employment in agriculture for youth in Africa, a needed evolution of US and EU support for their farmers, and regional policy reforms to promote food and nutrition security. 

The world food system is still in a vulnerable position in 2012. As the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals approaches, progress toward halving the proportion of people suffering from hunger is not on track. Improvements have been made by some countries but for 2013, commitments made in preceding years have to be translated into decisive actions. 

Agreement was reached at the Rio+20 summit to incorporate environmental sustainability into the economic policies in order to achieve "green growth". Two goals—Zero Net Land Degradation and the Zero Hunger Challenge—were launched during the event. Yet, there is a need to establish mecanism that will ensure the implementation of these commitments according to the report.
