Objectifs  : The objective of this systematic review is to examine the evidence of the impact of agricultural trade liberalization on food security in developing countries.

Descriptif
Food security is critical to the well-being of people in developing countries, and agricultural trade liberalisation has been a prevalent policy trend. With confusion persisting over the impact of agricultural trade liberalisation policies on food security, this review will contribute greatly in clarifying the issue. It could also possibly identify the contexts under which such policies may or may not contribute to achieving food security or even to increasing food insecurity. Some of the most commonly used types of indicators in the assessment of food security conditions include those related to : food production ; income ; total expenditure ; food expenditure ; share of expenditure on food calorie consumption, and nutritional status. This review will examine evidence of impact where clear links are made between trade liberalization, these indicators and food security (not just food supply or agricultural production), and if adequate data presents itself, will look at the impact on any identified sub-groups such as those based on gender, socioeconomic levels, households or communities.
