From Rhetoric To Policy Action

Agricultural conditions and means of achieving food security are long overdue. Despite the claims that the food crisis of 2007/8 was a temporary shock, data released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other independent sources suggest that food prices will increase steadily over the next decade, despite occasional fluctuations (Evans, 2009). The number of the world’s food insecure is growing. Latest estimates indicate that approximately one billion people are food insecure or one in seven go to bed to hungry every day (FAO, 2009, Action Aid, 2010: 7). The majority of these poor households are based in Africa’s countryside.
