Their inquiry into the Global Food System asked respondents how the global food system can work to ensure an end to hunger.
Our view is that the key priority for successful efforts to reduce hunger and improve food security must be to tackle the social injustice that pervades all aspects of the food system. We recommended that the governance of agricultural research should be revised to ensure that small-scale producers have a fair say in decisions on priorities that will shape their opportunities for years to come. And we reiterated our belief that there is a sufficient body of evidence on the relationship between food price volatility and speculation on food commodities to warrant further regulation of activities around commodity speculation.
