Abstract

It is well accepted that emergency food transfers are required to meet the food needs of affected populations during acute, short-run emergencies. It is also widely acknowledged that growing incomes and well functioning markets are necessary to facilitate access to food by vulnerable groups over the long run. What is less appreciated is that market-based strategies can be used to a) directly address short-run emergencies, and b) reduce the severity of short and long-run emergencies. The purpose of this short paper is to call attention to research findings that provide important guidelines for how this can be done.
