Why do we need food policies?

George Rapsomanikis and Mamadou Goita

29 April 10.30-12.30

Conflicting narratives confront each other in this period of geo-politically turbulent

globalization and renewed discovery of the virtues of food sovereignty. Does

ensuring the food security and the right to food of the world’s population depend on

keeping global markets open and supply chains flowing? Or do the latest layers of

crisis legitimate the voices of those who call for territorially embedded and protected

markets? George Rapsomanikas is Senior Economist of FAO’s Markets and

Trade Division and editor of the FAO flagship publication The State of Agricultural

Commodity Markets. Mamadou Goita is a development Socio-Economist and

Executive Director of the Institute for Research and Promotion of Alternatives in

Development (IRPAD), which works closely with small-scale farmers’ organizations

in Africa and other continents. He is a member of the IPES-Food expert panel.
