Recent G8, G20 Inclusive Multilevel Food Governance 

2014. Vol. 9. No. 4. P. 87–101 [issue contents]

Innovative, integrative, local, and business-inclusive governance for food, agriculture, nutrition, health and wealth can be strengthened through informal global institutions led by the Group of Eight (G8) and the Group of Twenty (G20). Their regular summits include the most important countries’ leaders and have a comprehensive, synergistic agenda, and impulse, as well as the flexibility and authority to link issues, factors, and actors in new ways. The G8 has increasingly addressed food, agriculture, nutrition, health, and the link among them, involved business, civil society, and low-income countries, and made decisions intended to affect the lives of the poor in many locales. The G20 has contributed to some degree in such ways too. Of particular promise is the G8’s New Alliance on Food Security and Nutrition, launched in May 2012, and the G20’s AgResults program built on commitments made in June 2010. Yet there remains much that both institutions can and should do to meet the combined, complex, food-health-wealth challenge now confronting the global community, before the next food crisis comes.
