Increasingly frequent and complex food crises are driving up the numbers of hungry and displaced people, compounding the urgent need to rethink crisis responses now. Drawing on recent experiences and research, the 2023 Global Food Policy Report highlights opportunities for building a more effective and sustainable set of policy responses.

This decade has been marked by multiple, often overlapping, crises. The COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters, and the ongoing war in Ukraine have all threatened the fabric of our global food systems. But opportunities can be found amid crises, and the world’s food systems have demonstrated surprising resilience. With new evidence on what works, now is the time to rethink how we address food crises. Better prediction, preparation, and resilience building can make future crises less common and less devastating, and improved responses can contribute to greater food security, better nutrition, and sustainable livelihoods.
