How can food reserves best enhance food and nutrition security in developing countries?

The use of food reserves is a hot topic on the international agenda and the source of intense debates. Food reserves offer great potential for meeting one of today's greatest challenges: to end hunger and prevent malnutrition while making agriculture and food systems more sustainable.

However, poor governance remains a major source of reluctance for international actors to engage in the field of food reserves, as many existing food reserves suffer from a lack of transparency and accountability. Another major point of discussion relates to the role to be given to food reserves in relation to other instruments, such as social transfers and social protection policies, in responding to food crises and enhancing resilience to food insecurity.

Building on a multi-country study commissioned through the CIRAD, this series of reports aim to raise awareness on the potential and limits of the use of food reserves among EU staff and Member States, as well as other donors and international actors. It intends to expand the range of policy options considered by decision-makers for more effective and integrated strategies towards the eradication of hunger.
