This compilation of six papers was produced in 2013 in the context of the “E15 Expert Group on Agriculture, Trade and Food Security Challenges”, convened by ICTSD and the International Food & Agricultural Trade Policy Council (IPC). These papers address issues such as the challenges and policy options for agriculture at the ninth WTO Ministerial Conference in Bali (MC9), trade and food security, the causes and challenges of recent global food shortages, the implications of climate change policies on agriculture and trade, and the importance of transparency for a well-functioning agricultural trade system.

Implemented jointly by ICTSD and the World Economic Forum, the E15Initiative convenes world-class experts and institutions to generate strategic analysis and recommendations for government, business and civil society geared towards strengthening the global trade system. The E15 Expert Group on Agriculture, Trade and Food Security Challenges is co-convened with the International Food & Agricultural Trade Policy Council.
