A recent analysis of domestic food prices for 58 developing countries shows that latest prices are higher than a year earlier in 78 percent of the cases, and in 43 percent of the cases are higher than 3 months earlier. Mostly affected are sub-Saharan African countries.
Grâce au Programme d'intervention en réponse à la crise alimentaire mondiale (GFRP), la Banque peut apporter une aide rapide aux populations les plus vulnérables dans 35 pays.

Therefore, a small increase in staple prices has a high impact on their overall food consumption.
