This article examines the implications of the linkage between two international regimes for food security. The WTO food trade regime influences Members' trade policies affecting food-related entitlements and may thus have an impact on food security, while the changing trade environment has undermined the traditional role of the world food aid regime in food security. Many developing countries, especially least developed and net food-importing countries may face more food difficulties than before, at least in the short term.

International trade and food security: conceptual discussion, WTO and the case of China
The stability of food supply chains is crucial to the food security of people around the world. Since the beginning of , this stability has been undergoing one of the most vigorous pressure tests ever due to the COVID outbreak. From a mere health issue, the pandemic has turned into an economic threat to food security globally in the forms of lockdowns, economic decline, food trade restrictions, and rising food inflation. It is safe to assume that the novel health crisis has badly struck the least developed and developing economies, where people are particularly vulnerable to hunger and malnutrition. However, due to the recency of the COVID problem, the impacts of macroeconomic fluctuations on food insecurity have remained scantily explored. In this study, the authors attempted to bridge this gap by revealing interactions between the food security status of people and the dynamics of COVID cases, food trade, food inflation, and currency volatilities. The study was performed in the cases of 45 developing economies distributed to three groups by the level of income.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the concept and measurements of food security under the framework of The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, explores the link between international trade and food security with an empirical investigation into the case of China, and draw policy implications in the context of WTO. The authors find that international trade indeed leads China to increase its dependence on food imports, namely, it negatively affects the food security in China. Owing to the importance of food security under multilateral trade system, this paper then briefly analyzes two relevant topics of Doha Round negotiation, i. It is proposed that WTO members should support the food self-sufficiency endeavors of developing countries and appropriately exempt them from rigid discipline of domestic support and market access.
International trade has the potential to significantly affect food security outcomes. Changing production and consumption patterns that result from increased international trade flows affect income levels and income distribution, which are the fundamental determinants of food security. The debate over the role of international trade in food security is often framed as a debate over the ethics of international trade; such a framework misdirects the debate onto an unproductive path. There is almost universal agreement on the objective of universal food security, and there is very little gray area in the ethics surrounding this objective. These effects are complex and difficult to identify, however, and most studies do not provide conclusive
Although food security has long been recognized as a universal human right, million people worldwide remained undernourished in
Танкадо не говорил, он показывал. Он открывал секрет, открывал ключ к шифру-убийце - умоляя, чтобы люди его поняли… моля Бога, чтобы его секрет вовремя достиг агентства. - Три, - прошептала она, словно оглушенная.
Живший в ее сознании герой умер, превратился в убийцу. Его руки внезапно снова потянулись к ней в отчаянном порыве. Он целовал ее щеки.
