Policies for good economic management of food price swings in African countries

The key objective of the project is to provide feasible approaches and design policy options for the economic management of food price swings and to strengthen the capacity for their implementation. As a first step to policy assessment and capacity building, the project also focuses on the examination of the nature of the food price episode, the analysis of its impact on both household and wider economy levels and the examination of the policies that are currently implemented in Eastern and Southern Africa.

The project is funded DFID, the UK Department for International Development.
