Open trade is crucial for food security and development (Devex)

Devex published an opinion piece by IFPRI’s researchers Will Martin and David Laborde, where they argue open trade is crucial for food security and development, citing analysis from their recent analysis and the 2018 Global Food Policy Report. “Restricting trade in response, however, would primarily raise prices for consumers and limit market access for producers in the developing world, increasing pressures on food security,” said Martin and Laborde.
