Published on December 14, 2017

CSIS_Food_Security_Report.JPGThe Human Face of Trade and Food Security is a publication of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in partnership with the New Markets Lab (NML).  It explores the different dimensions of trade that contribute to food security including; better access to safe and nutritious food, improvements in productivity-increasing technology, availability of storage and transport services, and generation of diverse income streams for farmers, enterprises, and countries alike—examined through the lens of the policy and regulatory environment that shapes the market. In contrast to top-down policy discussions, the publication takes a bottom-up approach that follows the opportunities and challenges facing different stakeholders that include farmers, consumers, innovators, traders, and developed and developing countries, that are part of the global system for trade in food.
