We will discuss the main challenges in food price volatility and give a summary of the key policy issues discussed at the G20 meeting which have implications for ACP countries. We will then focus on the effects of food price volatility on the ground by bringing various experiences from different actors. We will also identify what urgent and concrete policy actions need to be in place to mitigate the negative effects of food price volatility.

Among confirmed speakers are CEO of NEPAD, Dr. Ibrahim Assane Mayaki, Hafez Ghanem from Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Maximo Torero from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Mamadou Cissokho from Réseau des Organisations paysannes et de Producteurs de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (ROPPA), Chris Moore from United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).
