A Typology for Price-related Food and Nutrition Risks and Policy Responses

Lukas Kornher and Matthias Kalkuhl

FOODSECURE Technical papers from LEI Wageningen UR

Abstract: This paper takes a closer look at price-related food insecurity by looking at commodity prices instead of the national food price indices which are under suspicion of being not representative for poor consumers. A typology is developed that distinguishes between general price instability, seasonal price instability, and price uncertainty. The typology provides an indication of the potential of policy instruments to reduce food price volatility. The paper provides a description to the database which is the product of the analysis.
