All the versions of this article:
The organizers of the side event in parallel of the FAO Committee on Commodity problems ask the governments to definine new orientations for the markets management, recognizing the importance of strong agriculural politicies (based on food sovereignty and the right to food), supporting in particular the efforts of countries and regions that want to implement stocking mechanisms or supply management. They consider that the use of stocks can also happen in order to ensure prices regulation.
They ask to create a multilateral stocking mechanism in order to reduce prices volatility in complement of the regional mechanims.
