At its October 2010 meeting, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) requested the High-level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) to undertake a study on the potential of social protection to improve food security – this report contains the HLPE analysis and recommendations. After glancing through the main concepts, the report examines the merits and limitations of social protection instruments intended to support household food security, and how they can meet the food security needs of different food-insecure groups. The report presents recommendations for policy-makers and for the CFS emphasizing both intra-generational and inter-generational social protection measures aimed to ensure food security in the long run.
