Global Monitoring Report
English; Paperback; 192 pages; 8x10.5
Published April 24, 2012 by World Bank
ISBN: 978-0-8213-9451-9; SKU: 19451


The rapid increases in world food prices since 2005 have raised widespread concerns about their possible impact on poverty, hunger, and general progress toward the Millennium Development Goals. This year's report summarizes the short- and long-term impact of food prices on several MDGs, explores future trends, and review policy responses, from domestic policies such as social safety nets, nutritional programs and agricultural policies, to regional trade policies to support by the international community. This year's theme is used as a filter to examine progress toward the MDGs--especially for women, children, and countries in fragile situations. The Global Monitoring Report is prepared jointly by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
