On June 18-19, leaders of the G20 will meet in Los Cabos, Mexico to continue addressing global challenges such as food security and food price volatility. The 2011 G20 Summit led to important steps to reduce price volatility, including the creation of the Excessive Food Price Variability Early Warning system and the Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS). This year's summit will need to expand upon these steps in order to reach the goals of reduced volatility, poverty reduction, and global food security.

On May 1, IFPRI is hosting a Policy Seminar that will discuss progress made at the 2011 G20 Summit and the actions that need to be taken at the upcoming summit in Mexico. Watch a live webcast of the seminar starting at 12:15pm EST.
