In August 2008, CONDESAN, as a co-sponsor with the Secretary General of the Andean Community’s office, the Andean Initiative of Alliance for the Mountains, FAO, and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (COSUDE), held an online conference: “The Food Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities in the Andes”. This article presents some relevant notes and thoughts regarding the conclusions and recommendations from the conference. In this conference the concept of “food crisis” meant not only the ‘increase in food prices’ but also ‘food safety and nutrition’.
