This working paper is one of the products of a study conducted by DAI at the request of the European Commission as part of the advisory service ASiST managed by the unit in charge of rural development, food security and nutrition (C1) within the Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO).
The study has aimed at clarifying the potential role of food reserves in enhancing food and nutrition security in developing countries, and at making recommendations on how to use food reserves (in complement to other tools), taking into account the specificities on the context and the constraints of World Trade Organisation (WTO) disciplines.
The study was conducted based on i) an extensive review of the existing literature (both theoretical and empirical) and ii) 10 case studies analysing national or regional experiences in Africa, Asia and South America.
