The Inside Investor Seminar on Food Security is bringing the challenges the world faces with a strained global food supply to the table. First of all, strategies need to be found for sustainable agricultural and food management in the source countries. Agriculture remains the largest employment sector in most developing countries, and international agriculture agreements are crucial to a country’s food security. Some critics argue that trade liberalisation may reduce a country’s food security by reducing agricultural employment levels. Concern about this has led a group of World Trade Organisation member states to recommend that current negotiations on agricultural agreements should allow developing countries to re-evaluate and raise tariffs on key products to protect national food security and employment. What the impact of the further liberalisation of food and agricultural trade means for developing and emerging countries needs to be discussed.
