Food and Energy Crisis: Time to Rethink Development Policy 12 October 2008: This publication summarizes the discussion of the High Level North-South Dialogue on Food Security and Energy Security, which was co-organized by South Centre and the Permanent Mission of Indonesia in Geneva, Switzerland, on 17 June 2008, as part of the ‘South Intellectual Platform.'

It summarizes key messages that emerged from the dialogue and seeks to develop a Southern Perspective in this debate. The event brought together governmental and non-governmental actors to hear presentations on the evolution

of energy and food prices, government policy responses, underlying causes of the current crisis, and possible multilateral responses. [The Publication]
