This paper is part of a series of policy briefs produced by CIRAD. It discusses food price increases in international markets. The author stresses the need to analyse the recent evolutions of food prices from a broader perspective than that of volatility alone.

Dear colleagues and friends,

The PCD Unit is hosting an online dialogue on PCD and Food Security on the
OECD PCD Platform [1] from Monday-Friday, 18-22 November.

We would like to have your view on how more coherent policies can lead to
global food security, how to address global trends shaping the economy with
an updated policy coherence for development (PCD) narrative, and what actions
you would like to see undertaken in order to achieve global food security.

This online dialogue is structured according to two overarching elements: 1)
policy coherence more generally and how PCD can address global trends shaping
the global economy; and 2) food security more specifically and what actions
should be undertaken to achieve global food security.

These elements will be spread over five sessions, from the 18-22 November
2013 as follows, with one session per day.

Day 1: Global trends and how they shape the global development landscape and
imply a change for current PCD approaches and the Post-2015 development
agenda;

Day 2: Coherence and how we can apply a PCD lens to the issue of global food
security;

Day 3: Global actions and how to create the conditions to improve food
security on a global level;

Day 4: National efforts and how governments and key stakeholders can shape
enabling environments for food security on a national level;

Day 5: Measuring progress for food security and how evidence-based analysis
can support policy making.

On show at Expo 2015 [1]: the great issues of sustainable development. Expo
2015 will be a universal event displaying tradition, creativity and
innovation in the business of food. It will bring together many themes that
have already been handled by this event in the past, and set them out anew in
light of new global possibilities whose common core is the idea that everyone
on the planet should have access to food that is healthy, safe and
sufficient. Universal Expositions are six-month events taking place every
five years that develop a theme of global interest.
