IFPRI’s 2018 Global Food Policy Report reviews major food policy issues and developments from the past year. Leading researchers, policy makers, and practitioners review the changing policy landscape for reducing hunger and poverty and offer a look forward to 2018.

This seventh annual report takes an in-depth look at the impacts of globalization—including the movement of goods, investment, people, and knowledge—and the challenge of growing anti-globalization pressures. In 2018, the world must maintain its momentum toward ending poverty and malnutrition sustainably. Leveraging the benefits of globalization while minimizing the risks can make a key contribution to achieving this vision.
