Understanding the Impact of Food Prices on Children
by Rebecca Holmes, Nicola Jones, Steve Wiggins in 2013
SummaryThis paper looks at the impacts of the food price crisis on developing countries and examines the direct and indirect effects on consumers and producers. It analyses the implications of these impacts on children’s wellbeing. The distinct features of childhood poverty and vulnerability mean that children are likely to be affected by the food price crisis in different ways at both the household and intra-household level.
