The FAO’s recent announcement that global food prices reached a record high in December 2010 has once again brought food security to the forefront of global attention. The continued rise in food prices in 2010, coupled with the prediction of a continuation of the trend in 2011, will have serious implications for food and nutrition security across the world, particularly in developing nations. We have already seen some of these implications with riots in Algeria and Jordan and the ousting of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in Tunisia.
