Gérer l'instabilité des prix alimentaires. Des solutions différentes pour le Nord, pour le Sud et pour les marchés internationaux


  • Franck Galtier


Since the end of the 1980s, a dominant doctrine has emerged as to how food price instability should be managed. Its main message is that it is better to treat the effects of price instability without impeding price fluctuations. This approach is mainly based on price-risk management tools, complemented, in the case of developing countries, by public tools to manage food crises (emergency aid). The goal of this article is to discuss the relevance of this doctrine for domestic markets of developing countries, for domestic markets of developed countries and for international markets.
