- The Food Expenditure Ratio: a tool for monitoring the effects of changing food prices on food security and nutrition
Objectives and Scope
The 2008 food price spike heralded a new era of high and volatile prices and concerns about the impacts of these on food security and the poor. However ‘real’ food prices measured against consumer or other price indices give a misleading picture of the impacts of food price changes on the poor and food insecure, and hence on global food insecurity. A set of papers examine these issues and develop alternative and improved food security and sustainable agricultural productivity indicators taking account of the effects of food price changes.
