The Rice Crisis: Markets, Policies and Food Security

ed. by David Dawe. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations & Earthscan, dist. by Renouf Pub. 2010. $104.95.


Poor people who rely on rice as a staple suffered when rice prices on the world market spiked in 2008. In an effort to understand that event and design better policy responses, the Food and Agriculture Organization convened a workshop in 2009. The papers presented have been revised and updated for this publication, which provides an overview of the world rice market and trade policies, analysis of country- and region-specific policy responses, and numerous statistical tables and figures.
