Joint statement from FAO, IFAD and WFP on international food prices

In a joint statement, FAO, IFAD and WFP call for swift, coordinated international action on high food prices. They say action is urgently needed not only on the immediate issue of price increases but also on the long-term question of how the world produces, trades and consumes its food in an age of increased population, growing demand and climate change.
