Partnership Report Launch: Monetization of Food Aid - Reconsidering US Policy and Practice"
Partnership Report Launch: "Monetization of Food Aid: Reconsidering US Policy and Practice"
Food aid policy and practice have been significantly revised over the last few years. The Farm Bill introduced some key changes. Many practitioners have engaged in intense dialogue and discussion on issues of food aid effectiveness and impact. And there are rising international concerns with growing global food insecurity in the wake of price spikes, financial crisis, and economic downturns. One area of food aid policy and practice that has so far received relatively little scrutiny is that of monetization, that is, the sale in a recipient country, for local currency, of food aid that has been purchased in and shipped from the United States. With growing US involvement in the local and regional purchase of food aid, closer local market monitoring in the FEWS NET analyses, USAID engagement of independent firms to do the market analyses that underpin the Bellmon Determinations, and significantly greater development assistance budgets requested for food security and agricultural development programming, however, food aid monetization merits re-examination. The Partnership to Cut Hunger and Poverty in Africa, with substantial input from the Emerging Markets Group (EMG), has completed an overview of the Title II monetization record in the FY 99 - FY 05 period.
