Abstract
Based on extensive research, document reviews and country level surveys, the report covers a broad range of food security and agricultural development policy decisions implemented over the period 2007-2012. More than 70 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) which represent 81, 90 and 98 percent of the total populations respectively, are included in the review. Focusing on policies most debated and most frequently implemented since the 2007/08 food price crisis, the report identifies clear trends and emerging issues, presenting them at the national, regional and global level. Additional cross-cutting analysis examines policy harmonization within RECs and how national policy integration can either complement or compromise efforts for regional food security
