Abstract
Volatile and soaring food prices have been making headlines globally since 2007 with concerns over their negative impacts on the poor and their destabilizing social consequences in developing countries. Depending on published sources and local situation analysis and monitoring, and following a brief background on the pattern and causes of international food price surges, this brief attempts to assess the chronology of food price changes and their impact on the poor in Sudan, and proposes set of remedial measures in tackling price surges and volatility.
