Excessive Food Price Variability Early Warning System

Excessive Food Price Variability Early Warning System

In an effort to forewarn policymakers and humanitarian agencies of potential food security problems, IFPRI has developed a new tool to identify time spans of excessive price variability. The first of its kind, this new tool is updated daily to reflect price variability ratings for four major crops—hard wheat, soft wheat, corn, and soybeans.
