Key highlights from the FSNWG meeting held on October 18, 2012 (FSNWG, 18/10/12)

This has caused a decrease in staple food prices and an increase in food security. Between July and August 2012, grain prices declined in the majority of regional markets in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan and Sudan.
