The Global Food Policy Report is IFPRI’s flagship publication. This year’s annual report examines major food policy issues, global and regional developments, and commitments made in 2015, and presents data on key food policy indicators. The report also proposes key policy options for 2016 and beyond to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2015, the global community made major commitments on sustainable development and climate change. The global food system lies at the heart of these commitments—and we will only be able to meet the new goals if we work to transform our food system to be more inclusive, climate-smart, sustainable, efficient, nutrition- and health-driven, and business-friendly.

Volatility and spikes in global food prices can have large and diverse impacts on the welfare of poor people, particularly their food and nutrition status. Although high and volatile price levels have subsided in recent years, the international community should not become complacent. The complex set of concurrent factors behind the recent food price crises in 2007–2008 and 2011—including diversion of crops for biofuel, extreme weather events, low grain stocks, and panicky trade behaviors—are still present or have the potential to reemerge. An important component of improving the stability of the global food system is to reduce price spikes and volatility that can destabilize future food availability and accessibility. The objective of this brief is to review the latest literature and developments related to actions taken in preventing and managing food price spikes and volatility and to identify future actions to build a more resilient global food system.
