World Food Policy (WFP) in this double issue features articles from the 2015 World Food Policy Conference, organized in celebration of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s 60th Birthday Anniversary. By the theme Future Faces of Food and Farming: Regional Challenges the articles discuss the much-needed policy reconfiguration to meet the enormous complexities in today’s varied production and consumption patterns and inequalities, witnessed both within and between nations. Sharing common as well as different experiences among countries from different regions, the articles cover issues in fisheries, fresh markets, food security and income diversification. A number of short articles under the theme Food Security in an Age of Falling Commodity and Food Prices are included along with that from the keynote speech on The World Food Economy: A 40 Year Perspective on the Past, and a Look Forward.
The Journal continues to emphasize its efforts to bring to readers research-based articles of multi-disciplinary approaches. WFP editors thus welcome submissions of manuscripts contributing to providing a multi-disciplinary forum for generating the analysis and understanding of global trends—as well as regional and local forces shaping food and food policies around the world.
