This project was in support of the Global Food Crisis Response Program (GFRP), a World Bank crisis facility designed to assist countries in responding to the food crisis. It aimed to minimize the threat posed by high food prices on the livelihoods of poor urban and rural residents in developing countries.
To achieve this, the GFRP provided rapid and flexible support to reduce the negative impact of high and volatile food prices on the lives of the poor; support governments in the design of sustainable policies that mitigate the adverse impacts of high and volatile food prices on poverty; and support broad-based growth in productivity and market participation in agriculture. CIDA's contribution to the GFRP multi-donor trust fund supports the full range of interventions available under the Program.
