New IFPRI report on food security

Very much in line with the high level conference being currently held at FAO, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has recently published a report entitled “Impact of Climate Change and Bioenergy on Nutrition” / Marc J. Cohen, Cristina Tirado, Noora-Lisa Aberman, and Brian Thompson

“Food security has deteriorated since 1995 and reductions in child malnutrition are proceeding too slowly to meet the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target for halving hunger by 2015. Three major challenges threaten to drastically complicate efforts to overcome food insecurity and malnutrition: climate change, the growing use of food crops as a source of fuel and soaring food prices” is the introductory statement made by the authors.
