Since the mid-2000s agricultureand food prices moved toa higher level and in parallel with prices of other commodities–and at times have also been very volatile.
These events led to concerns which, in different ways, broughtto 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 higherinput 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 fourth Brieffocuses on developments in agricultural production over the last 5 decades.
