Since the mid-2000sagricultural and food prices moved to a higher level and in parallel with prices of other commodities–and at times have also been very volatile.
Theseevents led to concerns which, in different ways, brought to the forefront a debate about food security. Both developed and developing countries saw their consumers facing the impact of higher food prices, and their producers feeling the pressure from higher input costs.
In a series of Briefs(on Demand, Regional influences, Supply and Stocks)we analyse evolutions in different drivers responsible for these price developments separately and bring them together in a concluding Brief.
This third Brieffocuses on developments in supply and demand in the countries which are considered to be the new engines for growth in the coming decades.
