    Since 2008, global food prices have been consistently higher than in preceding decades, despite wild fluctuations. This year, even with prices stabilizing, the food price index remains high. The FAO has already warned 2013 could see prices increase later, owing to tight grain stocks from last year’s adverse crop weather.

    Should we consider high and volatile prices as the norm? Speculation, rising demand, global warming, biofuel boom…what are the factors pushing the prices up? What kind of strategies should be adopted to give an adequate response to the recurring crisis?
