This section presents information- and decision-support tools to strengthen the ability of policymakers, food policy experts, and researchers to respond quickly to dynamic developments in the world food system. The latest research findings on policy responses to the food crisis, policy tools to assess impact, and knowledge about key concepts related to food security for strengthening capacity of decision-makers can be accessed in this section. The objective is to make available well-defined sets of information and analysis that governments can employ to manage global food crises and other future challenges in their respective countries. A strong national capacity to respond effectively and adequately to food policy challenges ultimately translates to poverty reduction, agricultural growth, and economic development.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all tools provided in the Policy Analysis Tools section are public goods.
