This study, commissioned by the OECD, considers how changes to the world's food and agriculture system can contribute to improvements in food security in developing countries. It takes stock of a range of existing OECD work, including that undertaken with other international organisations, in particular for the G20, and places that work in the context of wider analysis both by international organisations and in academia. The purpose is to distil the main priorities for ensuring long-term global food security. The policy recommendations seek to improve the coherence of OECD countries’ policies and contribute to multilateral initiatives, such as those pursued through the G20. More widely, the study seeks to contribute to the global debate on issues pertaining to global food security. Global Food Security: Challenges for the Food and Agricultural System​​ (pdf)
