Risk Assessment of Food Supply PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Risk Assessment of Food Supply free pdf In recent years, food prices have been volatile worldwide. The high and fluctuated food prices led riots in many low income countries, and extended the world poverty population. Both developed and developing nations are rushing to buy farm-land even outside the countries for their future food security, which represents it has been more difficult to secure food supply. This book addresses the issue of agricultural trade liberalisation by Japan, factors behind the world food price spikes in 2008 and their impacts on least developed economies, using computable general equilibrium models. The book gives the readers insights on probabilistic benefits and risks from agricultural free trade by Japan that past literature could not answer. Furthermore, the readers will be given better understanding about the size of the impacts of various factors behind the 2008 food price hikes such as biofuel, oil price rise, and severe poor harvests in Australia, and their effects on impoverished countries. This book will be indispensable not only for students, academics and policy makers who are involved in the fields of agriculture, development, and food security, but also for people learning CGE modelling as it provides readers with plenty of information on the structure and applications of the models.
