Working Paper 50: Food trade and investment in South Africa: Improving coherence between economic policy, nutrition and food security

by Anne Marie Thow, Stephen Greenberg, Mafa Hara, Sharon Friel, Andries du Toit, David Sanders in 2017

This paper analyses the policy agendas that shape the food environment in South Africa, and aims to identify potential to improve policy coherence for nutrition, across economic sectors in South Africa. From a food supply perspective, food security and nutrition policy is effectively governed by economic policy actors – this includes agriculture, trade, finance, investment and commerce/industry.
