Feeding the Nine Billion. HUMANITARIAN AFFAIRS : Food Security, Energy, Population. 2009,01,30 Alex Evans New York University. This is the central argument of The Feeding of the Nine Billion, a new report on food prices and scarcity issues published by Chatham House.

Global food prices have eased significantly from their record highs in the first part of 2008. As a worldwide economic downturn has gathered pace, commodity markets have weakened significantly. By October 2008, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's Food Price Index stood at 164, the same level as in August 2007, and 25% lower than the Index's high of 219 in June 2008. However, this does not mean that policy-makers around the world can start to breathe a sigh of relief.
