Egypt's Gasc grain authority, at its third tender this month, bought 235,000 tonnes of wheat at an average price of some $245 a tonne excluding shipping - its cheapest purchase since at least 2012-13.

Can EU Common Agricultural Policy address 21st century global food security ?

Can EU Common Agricultural Policy address 21st century global food security ? | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

With the recent passage of both the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in the European Union and the Farm Bill in the United States, the EU and US are headed down “divergent paths” in the way their agricultural policies support their own farmers.

What type of impact will these policies have on international food security and production and public costs in the US and EU and how will they address the major global food security challenges of the 21st century?
