OCP Policy Center and its partners, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Center for Technology and Economic Development (CTED) at the New York University are pleased to announce the publication of a Special Issue on "Food Price Volatility and its Consequences" in Oxford Economic Papers.
The papers selected in this special issue were first presented in February 2014 at an international conference organized in Rabat in collaboration with the IMF's Research Department and the CTED. The conference entitled “Food Price Volatility: Causes and Challenges" aimed to stir the discussion on the social and economic issues related to food price volatility.
In this issue, we aim at providing an in-depth analysis of the challenges related to global food prices, as well as the domestic and international repercussions of food price volatility. Hence, the methods that could be implemented in order to effectively cope with food price fluctuations and the social costs they come at are central themes in this special issue.
