This year’s report looks at the impact of rapid urban growth on food security and nutrition, and considers how food systems can be reshaped to benefit both urban and rural populations.

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) published its annual flagship report in March 2017. The Global Food Policy Report 2017 report reviews the major food policy issues, developments and decisions of 2016, and highlights challenges and opportunities for 2017 at the global and regional levels.

The 2017 Global Food Policy Report also presents data tables and visualisations for several key food policy indicators, including country-level data on hunger, agricultural spending and research investment, and projections for future agricultural production and consumption.

In addition to illustrative figures, tables and a timeline of food policy events in 2016, the report includes the results of a global opinion poll on urbanisation and the current state of food policy.

As rapid urbanisation continues around the world, poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition are increasingly becoming urban problems. This rapid shift is changing diets and reshaping food chains - from small farms to modern supermarkets.
