Life was never quite the same for people on low incomes after the food crisis of 2008-11. But have people – and the world food system more generally – proven resilient in the wake of the food crisis? A harsh El Niño season triggering droughts and food crises requires answers to these questions.
Join Oxfam America for a panel discussion examining life after the global food price crisis and what is needed to create a resilient global food system.
