Abstract: The notion of secure food availability aspect within a country cannot be seen only in context of domestic demand and supply gaps only. Rather to capture the totality of the process it is important to identify risks faced by a country from changes in international food markets. Against this backdrop, this paper explores two channels of impact in the context of ECO member countries; focusing on international food price variation and production and trading patterns. Our research identifies member countries that are at risk to international price shocks, as well as those that have experienced a change in food demand patterns. Furthermore, the avenues of regional cooperation that can open up and prove beneficial to all ECO member countries have been identified.
