November 2018 Food Outlook of the Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS, FAO) | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Food Outlook (biannual report), released on 07/11/2018 (FAO)

The outlook for global supplies of agricultural commodities in the 2018/19 marketing season remains broadly in line with earlier expectations. While the weather had some impact on crop prospects, the overall production at global level did not change significantly from the forecasts published in the July issue of Food Outlook. Beyond weather-induced revisions, the latest FAO revisions take into consideration the mounting uncertainties regarding trade policies, as well as the changes in exchange rates and rising energy prices. Several MED-Amin countries are concerned by this statement.
