Global demand for food, feed, and fuel will continue to rise in a more populous and affluent world. Meeting this demand in the future will be challenging with global climate change; when production shocks stemming from climate variability are added to the new mean climate state, food markets could become more volatile. This talk will focus on the interacting market effects of demand and supply for major food commodities, with an eye on climate-related supply trends and shocks. It will also outline the potential effects of climate variability on regional trade patterns, price volatility, policy responses, and human welfare.
