Food Security: Implications for Supervisors
Food security is more relevant to financial supervisors than might be first apparent. It is at the junction of many issues that supervisors would recognize as fundamental to their usual work areas.
This Note examines the topic of food security, providing relevant context. It specifically addresses the issues that supervisors face, given their mandate and the overlap of issues. Given the topic, some detail is provided to better understand the common solutions, including index-based insurance; to highlight supervisory and regulatory issues; and to contribute to risk-based supervisory assessments of financial institutions.
