In response to the severity of the food crisis and the need for prompt action, the World Bank Group set up the Global Food Crisis Response Program (GFRP) in May 2008 to provide immediate relief to countries hard hit by food high prices. The Bank response has been articulated in coordination with the United Nations' High-Level Task Force on food security.
Le rapport établi par l'ONU en 1996 et intitulé « Impact des con.its armés sur les enfants », largement connu sous le nom d'Étude Machel, a été le premier à appeler l'attention de la communauté internationale sur les problèmes auxquels sont confrontés les enfants en période de con.it armé. Dix ans après, il a été décidé de procéder à un examen stratégique pour évaluer les progrès réalisés et dé.nir les principales tâches restant à accomplir, et priorités à respecter, dans le programme pour les enfants et les con.its armés.
The 1996 UN report "The Impact of Armed Conflict on Children", widely known as the Machel study, for the first time brought the issues faced by children in armed conflict to international attention. Ten years later, a strategic review has now been convened to assess progress and look forward to identify key challenges and priorities for the future of the Children and Armed Conflict Agenda.

Latest information indicates a slightly
larger global cereal output in 2001, of 1 870 million tonnes (including
rice in milled terms). However, even at this level, production would still
be less than the anticipated utilization requirements in 2001/02, leading
to a significant draw-down of cereal stocks.
While Afghanistan currently faces a grave food supply situation, food emergencies persist in many other countries (see box on page 6).
Introduction by the Director of Operations
The operational trends and priorities for 2002 that are set out in this document reflect the humanitarian situation as foreseen in the light of the lessons learned during the first nine months of 2001 and of initial indications as to the consequences of the attacks of 11 September. At the time of writing, early November 2001, events are still unfolding and their repercussions and future impact on ICRC operations are difficult to anticipate and assess.

Extracts from FAO/GIEWS Food Outlook No. 1, 2001
World cereal output in 2000 is provisionally estimated at 1 852 million tonnes, up slightly from the forecast in November. The forecast for global cereal utilization has also been adjusted upward to 1 909 million tonnes. The shortfall in production will have to be met by a significant drawdown of global cereal stocks.

Extracts from FAO/GIEWS Food Outlook No. 3, 2000
Latest indications continue to point to a larger cereal output in 2000. However, based on the current forecasts, total cereal production would not be sufficient to meet expected utilization requirements in 2000/01 and global cereal reserves would be drawn down again next season.
