AGRIBUS7054 Global Food and Agricultural Policy Analysis


COVID-19, trade policies, food prices and food security.

During the COVID-19 pandemic governments in developing countries and emerging economies around the world have implemented policies with several objectives: reduce the spread of the disease and ensure food security. Restrictions on mobility due to lockdowns are reducing income and affecting trade. Food prices are going up, while income is going down. Governments are implementing trade policies to ensure that there is enough food at affordable prices for their citizens. Many economists are comparing these government responses with those of the 2008 food crisis.
