This report explores a growing body of evidence on how diverse policy responses can reduce both the immediate and longer-term impacts of food crises, and improve livelihoods, incomes, and food security and nutrition for the future. Drawing on research from IFPRI and other CGIAR centers, it provides evidence-based policy recommendations for better predicting and preparing for crises, addressing crises when they occur, and building equity and resilience of food systems. It examines critical tools and approaches for better crisis response, considers how crises have affected six major world regions in recent years, and how these developments signal new challenges and opportunities. It is intended for governments, donors, and nongovernmental organizations.
