What is the impact of the G20 2011 on agricultural prices volatility, the declared source of global food insecurity?

Abstract : We, the Leaders of the G20, met in Cannes on 3–4 November 2011. [..] Today, we reaffirm our commitment to work together and we have taken decisions to reinvigorate economic growth, create jobs, ensure financial stability, promote social inclusion and make globalization serve the needs of the people. (G8-G20 2011) After this preamble, the official declaration of the Heads of State introduces the topics for discussion and recommendation on world food security: – to address the volatility of commodity prices and promote agricultural – to avoid the use of protectionism and strengthen the multilateral trading system – to address the challenges of development. In general, the text strongly associates global food security and agricultural price volatility, with many references to the Action Plan defined by the Agriculture Ministers at the Agricultural G20 earlier in June 2011, in Paris (MAAPRA 2011). This paper addresses these statements in depth and answers the following questions: What impact can be expected from these general recommendations as well as announced proposals? What are the implications for agricultural producers in developed and developing countries? What are the likely impacts on consumers? What are the impacts for producing and importing countries?
