High food prices have brought into sharp focus an existing global food crisis that affects almost one billion people

But hungry people cannot be fed on the hope of long-term solutions. Governments, supported by aid agencies and donors, must act now to provide systematic emergency assistance and longer-term support to those in need, and to better protect people in chronic poverty against shocks such as drought, floods and market volatility.
Here are some of the top recommendations of this report:
  • Governments in developing countries should promote a shared understanding of hunger and vulnerability and of appropriate responses. They should also ensure affected communities have the necessary access to income and food through locally appropriate, social protection measures.
  • Donors and international organisations should support through finance and technical assistance the active role of the state, investing in national capacity for a sustained response to hunger and supporting regional initiatives. They also need to increase funding for cash transfers to needy families and reduce the emphasis on in-kind food aid.
  • International non-governmental organisations (INGOs) should strengthen local and national mechanisms of prevention and response to food crises rather than just delivering aid to people. They need to support local civil-society organisations to participate in shaping and implementing national food, agriculture and social protection policies.
